ForWords Literacy Lab and San Rafael High School

ForWords Literacy Lab works in partnership with the Banyan Integrated Studies Program at San Rafael High School. During the winter and spring of 2015 ForWords Teacher Consultants coached Banyan students in their writing of historical fiction stories based on research about their home countries. The students read Isobel Allende’s House of Spirits and then wrote their own stories which resulted in the ForWords’ supported publication of an anthology of these stories entitled, “Mi Familia.”
