especially the first cultures of our ESL students.

(WHY?) WHAT is the purpose of the EXPO?

The EXPO has several purposes:

to promote diversity education and appreciation of world cultures at AVC;

to provide English language practice for ESL students;

to network AVC students from similar or different first cultures.

WHEN is the EXPO?

The EXPO is usually during the day hours of a Wednesday and Thursday in April or May.

WHERE is the EXPO?

The EXPO is usually in or near the AVC cafeteria.

HOW is MY EXPO presentation done?

1) Get a poster board.

2) Include things that are:

Informational (the country's name at the top, data, culture, photos, flags, maps)

Personal (MY hometown, family, friends, hobbies, school, class writing, favorite things)

Multi-sensory (small food/drink samples, music, artwork, clothing, flowers/plants, pictures)

Remember, all EXPO students...

...are teachers and experts on their first cultures!

...practice their English with others at AVC!

...receive grades on their presentations!
