Lancaster school district and EMU partner for two-week English as a second language program

Adult students in two English as a second language classes at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in Lancaster, Pennsylvania partnered with School District of Lancaster to host a two-week summer program at Burrowes Elementary School, which concluded Thursday, July 17, 2014.

Lessons taught by the EMU graduate students focused on science topics, such as meteorology, while building students’ language skills. The first-time program counted as practice hours toward the graduate students’ certifications.
