Welcome back fantastic friends everywhere: the US, the UK, Nigeria, Malaysia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, Vietnam, Netherlands, India, and all! 😉
Your students talk all the time reflecting their parents’ talk. Parents felt that they should take the wheel out of the Admin’s hands to make sure that their own kids would be safe mentally and physically.
You must have heard of parents almost in all States who stood up to the school administrators and to the teachers who wanted to impose a foreign culture on their children.
The worst part is that it is not easy for parents to do that; many other parents take the easy way out of this dilemma and just follow whatever the school dictate on them, which make them miserable for the rest of their lives.
There has been a project for students to write about their passion. Savannah wrote about her pretty animated zone mentioning that her passion was film industry. Mateo said that he loved “Making Bread” and described that he wanted to have that passion turned into reality. Leslie suggested that there should be ideal bedroom where a person could find the most comfortable room to live in confirming that her interest was in decoration.
Brian wrote about sports and how it affect people positively and that he wished to be a big athlete one day. Wyatt’s interest was in Nike and how to develop the Nike products to better suit customers.
Isabella introduced her passion in a drawing for a cover book she prepared for children book. Amy made a beautiful drawing for a vase of flowers. She praised a habit that she inherited from her mom which was giving flowers to her mom every Mother’s Day.
Two students had deeper thinking of life: Jaretzy expressed his passion about finding out what you should do if you got lost in the forest or in a foreign country, while Shin wrote about how the Army affect your life positively.
Which one made more sense to you providing that they are all high school students who are about to move on with their lives entering colleges/universities? 🙄
