Ms. Cunnane’s ENL students at Atkinson have been researching significant athletes to complement their study of Jackie Robinson, who is the central focus in the beginning of Module 3A. As part of the project, students study the importance of sports in American culture over time and analyze other respected sports figures to develop their understanding of the cultural context in which these athletes competed and the barriers these athletes broke during the times in which they lived.

The students in Ms. Cunnane’s class researched, memorized and transformed into their favorite sports figure. They presented and taught their classmates the athletes’ challenges and achievements, displayed pride and respect for each other, and modeled scholarly ethics and attentiveness.
