SECONDARY BILINGUAL ORIENTATION CENTER: FOOD TALK

"Food Talk" was a collaboration between Seattle's Secondary Bilingual Orientation Center (SBOC), Refugee Women's Alliance, and Jack Straw Productions. Students from the SBOC worked with a nutritionist from Seattle Children's Hospital and Jack Straw staff members to create public service announcements about healthy eating habits. The students wrote scripts, created sound effects, and recorded their pieces at the Jack Straw studios. The students worked in pairs, recording their pieces in English and their native languages. Languages represented were Nepali, Tigrigna, Amharic, and Spanish.
