It Make Me Angry All Time


I have a student whose English is pretty much non-existent. I think he really is a talkative person, but his lack of English makes it really challenging, not to mention the culture shock of coming from China to here. Anyway, on this form I have students fill out at the beginning so I can get to know them & their needs, he wrote, “My English not good. I cant speak it. I cant write it. It make me angry all time.”
Anyway, the kids are making crazy-fun portraits that tell about themselves. In his picture, this student made himself with no mouth. His t-shirt also says “Good Morning” written across it, which was taught in the English Language Development’s class that morning. It’s really interesting how images tell the story of the person who made it.
