We're rolling into the fourth week of online learning, the third week of action project work time, and we've got a whole lot to be grateful for.
"What's that, Ashley?" You ask. Well, students, y'all have teachers who care about you all to the moon and back again, administrators who are working around the clock to make sure they are finding the best ways to support students and teachers alike amidst less than ideal conditions, open spaces in which we can explore, adventure, seek solitude, exercise, calm the nervous system, get perspective, breathe fresh air, learn Tik Tok dances, you name it, and lastly, you have meaningful work vis a vis your action projects, to devote your time and energy amidst a time when many people are struggling with how to be productive and contributing members of society.
So without further adieu, I bring you this week's update
1. Thesis Refinements: For those of you who still have time, remember that thesis re-submissions are due 1 week after you receive an email with your rubric and comments from your Humanities teacher. Remember, the thesis is 50% of your overall Humanities grade and thus has a big impact!
2. See pages 1-3 of this document for a senior project calendar for April and May-- it includes action project and TED Talk dates
3. Action Project
The senior teaching team is meeting this Tuesday, April 21st to discuss TED Talks and we'll share more information starting the week of April 27th. TED Talk prep will likely happen starting Wed., May 6th and run through Thursday, May 14th. Presentations will likely run between Friday, May 15th and Friday, May 22nd. Again, more specifics to come next week.
