Here’s the deal for this OPTIONAL writing activity.
Students can create a new “Discover” post in their iBlog. They can then use the score I give on that post to replace any other “Work From Home” mark in Google Classroom – if that is fair. A mark already in PowerSchool can only go up I offer.
Some students will see the prospect of writing a post as a burden, others will see it as a challenge, while others may see it as a relief. Participation in “Discover” writing prompts is optional.
I offer the choice to “Discover” as an outlet for working through complicated thoughts and feelings during a chaotic time. Students can respond in a variety of genres, media, or format – discover.
Each “Discover” prompt begins with a single word and a few suggestions for getting started.
Ways to support your child:
- Ask you child if there are any “Work From Home” marks they’d wish to improve.
- Encourage your child to make the writing personal, the prompts are optional and can be adapted. Be creative, be original, discover.
