Part 2 of Mr. Christensen's R3 class photography assignment is here to brighten your day. If you missed it, check out Part 1 of pets doing homework.
Students aren't learning about history, they're contributing to it.
The class is creating a journal of their experiences during the #covid19 crisis. Each week, students receive a writing prompt covering 9 topics. It helps to include light-hearted assignments for students in quarantine.
Mr. Christensen's goal is to compile students' responses into a completed published work. The project includes chapter introductions written by prominent members of our community. "It's a way for future generations to have a first-hand account of what life was like during this time in history," said Mr. Christensen. The class plans to distribute copies to Granada Hills Charter Library, the Oviatt Library at California State University Northridge, Los Angeles Public Library, and the Los Angeles County Archives and Records Center.
Here's a list of 8 pictures from students whose pets have learned to do more than eat homework.
1. If anyone spots Waldo, please let us know. He was last seen darting around areas under a normal curve in the back yard.
2. NVM, Whiskers found him.
3. It's okay, Scruffy. Just notify GHC's Help Desk at email@example.com or call 818-360-2361, ext. 370
4. While Scruffy waits for Chromebook support, Nemo dives into some light reading, "Guarding Virtue & Freedom."
5. Speaking of reading, Martin. We know you want to come inside but until you finish that chapter...
Kidding, Martin. You can come inside now.
6. Meanwhile Shaggy is jumping on that late work policy.
7. Late work submitted. It's midnight. Still refreshing for the new grade like...
8. But sometimes you just feel like Goldie and you're done. Remember GHC has a Nursing and Mental Health Team that consists of nurses, school social workers, school psychologists, and an office assistant. Please reach out to them, a friend or family member.
Mr. Christensen and his class dedicate the project to GHC's Class of 2020. We hope this post helped brighten your day and remember that while we are apart, we are not alone.
