8th Grade Luncheon with Recent Immigrants to Chile
In Social Studies and Language Arts classes, as part of an integrated Humanities Unit, grade 8 students have been
preparing to answer the driving question, "What can you do in your personal life and in your larger community to welcome and support immigrants and other newcomers?"

In order to accomplish this, students hosted a lunch for recent immigrants on Tuesday, October 23rd at 12:00 in the terrace of the Fine Arts building. This gathering of students and recent immigrants to Chile served help students betterunderstand the immigrant experience through food and lively conversation.

After enjoying lunch together with our guests, students worked in groups to conduct an "Empathy Interview" in order to gather information and accurately retell the immigrant's story and specifically their move to Chile. The interviews also served to assist students identify the needs of recent immigrants and propose possible solutions in order to facilitate their inclusion and assimilation in Chile.

Following the interviews, students will analyze the data collected, write a narrative and create an exhibition sharing the experience of recent immigrants to Chile. This exhibition will honor the immigrants' voices and raise awareness of the migrant experience in Chile.

The Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes facilitated the visit of the 30 immigrants and our 8th graders hope to continue to foster a relationship with the immigrant community. The students' aspiration is to continue to develop reciprocal commitments between both the Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes and Nido's school community as a whole.
