This summer, the students from 826LA’s English Language Learner Camp in Mar Vista and Echo Park created their own definitions for vocabulary words. Within this dictionary, you will find the most verdant words from Nature Week, the tastiest words from Food Week, the most cosmopolitan words from World Arts and Culture Week, and the most inquisitive words from STEM Week. The students’ definitions are at times hilarious, poignant, and profound. We hope our students’ imagination and creativity, and the hard work they put into finding new ways to use everyday words, will reveal new ways at looking at the world around us.
