The culminating assignment of the Mother Tongue Project English class is a personal synthesis essay that is published on the Santa Fe Reporter's “Mother Tongue” blog.
Students deliver their work during the spring’s Annual MTP Student Reading + Celebration and then becomes a published writer. Each essay is a powerful reflection of triumph and success—a reminder that its writer is smart, thoughtful and persistent—that she can finish something big, that her voice is important and that people want to hear what she has to say.
