Mrs. Wilker's English 11 students have just concluded giving their Heritage Speeches. As part of this project students were encouraged to talk with family members to find out information about how and when their ancestors arrived in America, why they came, and the heritage traditions that are still carried out in their family. Students have been very excited to share their speeches about what they learned. Here's just some examples of the visuals we got to see. Hopefully these projects have inspired some to keep closer records of their heritage for future generations.
