In this video, Marlaco plays the part of the man who has come to a new country.

Marlaco studied the book to develop answers to the interviewer’s questions about the whole experience of leaving your homeland and arriving in a very different place.

    Thanks so much for posting this! It’s great!

    Marlaco is so expressive and has wonderful answers to all of the questions. It’s really nice to see some of the work that the older students are doing. I am a friend/advocate for a seven year-old who is at GBSD currently but who will be transitioning to a different school next year. My friend’s personal story actually parallels the story of “The Arrival,” as he and his family fled persecution from an African country to come to the US several years ago. I’m thrilled that the stories of refugees and asylum seekers are being taken into consideration in your curriculum. Keep up the great work!
