Team Columbia Rises at Atkinson

As a culminating activity in their analysis of the book “Esperanza Rising,” Team Columbia — one of the teams at Atkinson named after Ivy League institutions this year — displayed their group projects and visited each other’s classrooms. The dual-language students showcased their work to teachers and administrators, and together they tasted authentic food motivated by the novel. Students discussed their projects using quotes, text-based details and their own creative interpretations of Esperanza’s journey.
Atkinson teachers are proud of the students for their hard work and demonstration of their understanding of the influential novel.
