Comparing days #sol20


Since schools are closed, I’ve been thinking about my current schedule and activities and how they compare with what I usually do.  I think that I’m going to invite my students to do the same.

    I like this comparison. The changes happening in our lives are really making us stop and think, aren’t they? Together, but apart, we’ll all make it through! 🙂 ~JudyK

    This is a great comparison piece of writing that would be interesting for students to produce as well, just like you said. I also saw a post on social media asking students to write down their feelings so they can be shared in the future – My son is a senior in high school. His spring will look very different than he thought. Although he seems to be accepting this without much drama or unhappiness, I think it might benefit him to write some of what he thinks and feels down on paper. We are living as unprecedented history is being made – surely, it will be referenced in the future.
