This book contains the efforts of students from 826LA in Echo Park's English Language Learners summer camp. Over the course of five weeks, students developed and refined their English language skills through creative writing. Each week covered a different theme with activities based around that them: Food, World Arts & Culture, Nature, STEM, and Future Adult. Students learned about critical writing while being critics on the first ever 826LA Top Chef during food week. They learned about the beauty of the scientific method while being treated to the beauty of "mathamagic". This chapbook represents the excitement, hard work, and creativity of our students as they explore and express themselves through writing.
We hope you enjoy this chapbook as much as they enjoyed writing it.
