Hello, my name is Pam Terry and I currently work at John T. Pirie. I am a veteran teacher who really enjoys my experiences with CAPE. My students are involved in depicting the changes the main character of Esperanza Rising goes through after the death of her father, loss of her home/inheritance and the escape/relocation to the United States. Their visual interpretations of these changes are very creative and insightful. My students and I have learned new techniques, strategies and approaches to connect language arts and reading with visual arts.
