CABE Grant Awarded to Godsman Bilingual Teacher

“Nuestras Recetas de Familia Writing Project” is the name of the project envisioned by Caitlin Goodson who is a fourth grade Bilingual teacher at Godsman Elementary in Denver Public Schools.  Goodson, along with fellow fourth grade Bilingual teacher Janet Cedillo will be conducting after-school workshops with students from both of their fourth grade classroom and their families.  They have already recruited 2 parents to help conduct the workshops in which families will come together to write recipes and the family stories behind them.  The final product will be more than a cookbook.  It will be both a collection of recipes that carries the stories and culture of the participating families.  The $1,300 grant from CABE will allow the teachers to provide the workshops and to publish the books so that each family can have a copy of their writing project.  This is how las maestras Goodson y Cedillo are promoting Bilingualism, Biliteracy, and Biculturalism with CABE’s support.
