Journaling during the Pandemic

Help me give my students journals, colored markers, & colored pencils so they can document their lives during the pandemic. Journaling is therapeutic, students can express their fears, hopes & joys during this troubling time.

My Students

As we prepared for school closures in mid-March, the staff at my school attempted to give a computer to each student before they left campus. Since then we have worked together to contact each student to ensure that they have a computer and helped them get set up with free wifi, but unfortunately, several students still don't have internet access because connecting with internet providers has been full of bureaucratic challenges & frustrating dead-ends.

Distance learning is severely challenging for my students due to their economic status, they live in crowded apartments without privacy, and struggle to find a quiet place to learn.

Nevertheless, they persist and over 50% of my students are fighting to learn, zooming in for class from the hallway of their apartment complex, the closet, and even from their place of work.

My Project

In the fall semester, my students read Anne Frank's Diary in a Graphic Adaptation and we discussed at length Anne's struggles living in isolation and fear of the outside world. Now that my students are sequestered at home I hope that they too can find solace in writing.

By journaling, they can vent their emotions & create a historic document that could be used to educate future generations.

I want my students to have an outlet for their feelings, and to be creative. With colored pencils and colored pens, they can draw & illustrate their ideas and dreams. Journaling can also be a meditative activity & provide an opportunity for students to take a break from screens.
