In our American history class we are researching contemporary issues and designing ways that people can take action and improve our community. Our group is focused on NewComers And Their Struggles In High School. This issue is important because in all schools around the U.S there are many newcomers entering High Schools. This issue is complicated because it is caused by them not knowing the language in the class which concludes with them not understanding and people bullying them since they can’t tell anybody . However, we need to address it because it has serious effects like NewComers dropping out and quitting to get an education. It also has the long term effect of causing them to not be able to qualify for a lot of jobs later on in life. To address this issue, we think that people should give the newcomers mentors so they can have 1 on 1 help. Some people might oppose this idea because they probably won’t have the money to support their students like that, but it is a good solution because the they will be able to pass all their classes so they can make it far in life. To raise awareness about the struggles they go through, we have made a prototype that is a pictograph to address the problem and have a solution to help resolve it. Please give us any feedback you have about our prototype to help us improve it to help raise awareness about this important issue.
