From Summer Reading to Service Learning at New Roads Middle School

For New Roads Middle School students, this was summer reading with enough impact to last the whole year long: “Outcasts United” – the vivid and inspiring true story of a soccer team of refugee boys from war-torn homelands and their determined coach – had already stirred class discussions about migration, cultural differences and building a global community (not to mention a schoolwide soccer game). But NRS students and faculty took the exploration a few steps further and reached out to refugees in their home community of Los Angeles. Watch this video to see how a single summer reading assignment evolved into genuine community action.

Does your school do something similar?
