Multicultural Art Nature Grammar Opportunity

MISSION: TO PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK FOR CO-CURRICULAR EDUCATION BY OFFERING CULTURAL AND VOCATIONAL ACTIVITES

The MANGO Education Campaign focuses on connecting the extracurricular experience with the classroom experience through project-based learning.  We also offer lesson plans to help teachers with their classes. 

Classroom Experience

Extracurricular Activities

We believe that the classroom experience is important because it provides structure for students.  Some of the subjects that we focus on include, but aren't limited to:

  • Writing Composition

  • Reading

  • Public Speaking

  • Foreign Language

  • Political Science

  • Public Policy

  • Geography

  • History

  • Business

  • Technology

  • Mathematics

  • Physical Education

  • Science

  • Engineering

  • Fine Arts

  • Music

  • Journalism

Extracurricular activities  allow students to build skills such as leadership and teamwork.  These types of activities are often afterschool, but can also take place during the school day.  Examples of them are:

  • Volunteer 

  • Environmental

  • Student Government

  • Yearbook

  • Student Newspaper

  • Student Radio

  • Student Television

  • Debate

  • Sports

  • Cultural

  • Robotics

  • Theatre

  • Band

  • Orchestra

  • Chorus

Co-Curricular Learning 

When the classroom experience is combined with the extracurricular experience, learning is much more engaging for the students and prepare students for the world around them.  Classes can have:

  • Event planning

  • Language exchange

  • Charity drives

  • Fundraisers

  • Speeches

  • Science fair projects

  • Video games

  • Career assessments

  • Mock interviews

  • Resume writing

  • Computer literacy tasks

  • Trivia competions

  • Boardgames

  • Scavenger hunts

The resemblance that the MANGO education model has to the fruit is that the fruit is sweet and healthy.  The goal of the MANGO Campaign is to provide learning opportunities that are also engaging.  Each of the five letters of the MANGO acronym represent specific aspects of education that are important. 

  • Multicultural benfits range from learning about different languages and global human rights to finding out about international holidays, customs, and geography.

  • Art can help students become more creative through painting, music, theatre, and other components.

  • Nature is a component that focuses on taking care of all living creatures through preservation of the sky, land, and water.

  • Grammar emphasizes strongly on the importance of building reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.

  • Opportunity stresses mostly on career development, but can also empower students in home management and using numbers.

The subjects that MANGO emphasizes on the most are human are humanities-based.  Foreign language education is the largest part of our work on the humanities, as we believe language education (1) improves employment opportunities, (2) expands diplomacy among  countries, and (3) builds friendships with people. MANGO is an expansion of Language Exchange Atlanta, a meetup group designed to bring individuals together to practice their language skills.  While our biggest focus is language learning, we also stress other important aspects of education, including media literacy, global studies, and service-learning.

However, we also focus on subjects that aren't part of the humanities.  In fact, we believe that the humanities can make other subjects easier to learn.  We believe in implementing subjects like music to make classes such as mathematics more entertaining or theatre to improve science class.  Regarding how the MANGO model can result in co-curricular learning, here are examples of our vision.

  • Business classes will give students opportunities to participate in fundraisers that benefit student organizations.  

  • Communication classes will allow students to write newsletters and make videos to advertise for companies.

  • Students will plan multicultural events and participate in community service projects for social studies classes.

Art Class

Interdisciplinary Focus

MANGO is an expansion of Language Exchange Atlanta, a meetup group designed to bring individuals together to practice their language skills.  Our biggest focus is  language learning, but we also emphasize on other important aspects of education, including media literacy, global studies, and service-learning.  Our campaign follows many of the ideals during the Renaissance era.  In other words, we realize that technical subjects like science can coexist with a focus on art and literacy. When a scientist shows a diagram of the human body, an artist needs to make it look artistic.  Also, when people learn how to code, grammar is used when the technical concepts are explained.  Schools should do more than provide academic knowledge. Education should also help students to be socially conscious and prepared for careers.
