In the community: Cortes’ class making a difference at Casa Alba
A great new feature story from Marketing/University Communication intern Katelyn Staaben takes a closer look at a UW-Green Bay class making a difference in our community. New this semester, Assistant Prof. Aurora Cortes’ “Working and Communicating with Hispanic Parents of Young Children” course brings Education students to the Casa Alba resource center to conduct classes with young children and their parents. The students form groups with the mothers and their 1- to 3-year-old children to teach literacy activities while overcoming language and cultural barriers. As one student remarked, “You need to know the background of who you’re working with before you can truly understand what their life is like.” You can read more about the students’ experience.
