Student intern Lauren Kilpatrick
As part of their training, students at the University of Arizona pursuing their master’s in Teaching English as a Second Language, or MA-TESL, often participate in hands-on projects that benefit the community. Over the years, students have participated in various activities, including contributing to an adult literacy program at Manzo Elementary and teaching ESL classes in prison.
This spring, MA-TESL students taught English to Tucson community members in the Literacy Connects “English Language for Adults” program and developed literacy curriculum for Educarte AIM Mexico, a nonprofit providing young people in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, with educational opportunities.
