Please help us make it happen by sharing with us what you do in your classroom to engage the community!

    We welcome chapter proposals (of no more than 300 words) on projects that seek to create and design fun and meaningful Assets Mapping activities to encourage and engage all stakeholders within the school communities to think creatively about community assets and create their own assets map. 


    All accepted entries will be published in an E-book, as an addition to the NYS TESOL digital store. All the proceeds will go to support the scholarship of multilingual learners.
