My Students

True to human nature, my students are all handling this pandemic differently. Some are content to be at home in bed, sleeping, watching Netflix and playing video games. Others have maintained their ambition and are working hard despite the changes. Some are isolated, depressed and struggling to maintain while, on the opposite extreme, others are overwhelmed with a full house where they are sharing one computer with multiple siblings. Still others have abandoned school to work full time to help support their families through this difficult time or have become caregivers to elderly, bedridden relatives.

My Project

My students will write about what they are grateful for each day as well as any other feelings that they want to express. It is proven that people who take the time to appreciate what they have by showing gratitude are happier and more well adjusted than those who do not.

I am encouraging my students to write about their feelings to help them process what they are going through as well as document this unique time in history.

I believe journaling will help them cope with the CoVid pandemic in a healthier way.
