My Students

I teach students in the 6th - 9th grade in East Oakland who are in a Moderate Severe program. My students and I are learning how to cope with many changes for Fall 2020. My students want to create their own mask, they are tired of using the disposable mask and would like. to make their own mask. The idea is for my students to make their mask and then help other kids make their own mask at home.

My Project

My students are frustrated that they are constantly wearing the disposable mask, that they want to create their mask to wear. They want to create a mask to keep them safe during the Pandemic. Eventually, they would like to make videos to help other students create their masks at home, with the help of an adult. My students want to have a voice of their own and be able to wear their masks. My students know that we are all facing a challenging moment in our lives and would like to make a positive contribution to our community and other children.
