METROPOLITAN SCHOOL DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
8550 Woodfield Crossing Blvd.
There are a number of students from immigrant and refugee
communities who are enrolled in MSDWT schools and struggle to
achieve full English language fluency. Such a lack of fluency has
significant consequences for academic achievement. Further, many
students enrolled in Butler University struggle to achieve full
intercultural competency, and that lack of cultural fluency has
significant consequences in terms of their ability/achievement as
citizens of their communities and of the world. At various schools
within the MSDWT school district, Butler students and MSDWT
students work together in pairs or small groups to discuss,
research, and develop stories that derive from the experiences and
cultures of the MSDWT students.

Thompson, or our Butler advocate, Rachel O'Heran.
