Skylar Sasson "anota un gol"

October 12, 2012

El 9 de octubre de 2012, Skylar Sasson viajó a la escuela pública 171 al este de Harlem, Nueva York para leer su libro, Siempre he soñado tener una tienda, a un grupo de 30 estudiantes de cuarto y quinto grado del programa de apoyo extra escolar GOAL ("gol", en español). 

GOAL (en inglés: dando acceso abierto al aprendizaje) es una organización sin fines de lucro con sede en Nueva York que provee de programas educacionales y motivacionales estructurados para niños de comunidades desatendidas de Nueva York. Como programa extra escolar centrado en los estudiantes, GOAL representa una estrategia de intervención temprana que ayuda a estos niños a obtener éxito en la escuela para en el futuro acceder a mayores oportunidades.

 

Because the message of I Always Dreamed of Having a Store so fully connects with that of GOAL, Skylar’s hour with these students made a truly exciting impact. GOAL students were utterly impressed that Lucy, the protagonist of I Always Dreamed of Having a Store, traveled by herself — at their age of ten — to a new city to work to make money for herself and her family. They were also thrilled that Skylar could speak, write and read Spanish –especially as the vast majority of their families derive from Spanish-speaking countries like the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Students were very eager to learn about Bolivia’s weather and landscape, laughing at the number of animals Skylar was able to see in the Bolivian countryside. They marveled at the Bolivian handicrafts Skylar brought, including a woven bag with cholitas and earrings made from leaves of the jacaranda tree. Among other lessons, the GOAL students walked away repeating ja-ca-randa, ja-ca-randa with giggles and smiles.
