Tiny Doors: A Mabry Community Art Project Inspiring ELs Through STEAM

Tiny Tiny Door project inspires ELs to reflect on their goals and dreams.

Mabry ELs participate in a STEAM community art project that inspires them to think big.

ESOL students at Mabry Middle School recently participated in a STEAM focused community art project aimed to stimulate curiosity and exploration by highlighting student goals.  Inspired by the Tiny Doors Atlanta community art project, the goal of this activity was to encourage students to dream big while cultivating skills for college and career readiness.

The Tiny Door project was designed to incorporate standards-based practices that focuses on conducting research that draws on several sources and generates questions for further investigation. Students had to conduct research on one of their desired career pathways and write a research report using a formal writing procedure and create a tiny space representing their dreams and aspirations.

The ESOL/Title III Department was invited to observe the masterful student work on display in the media center.  The final projects reflected the hard work and dedication teachers and students are doing to ensure pathways of success.

Little doors can most certainly lead to pathways of big dreams.  The students and staff at Mabry continue to push full STEAM ahead toward big dreams.
