Good Morning Parents and Students!


Students are going to spend the next couple days exploring and additional two articles about natural disasters and creating higher level thinking questions for our discussion board (we want them to have a broad basis for discussion and to have more practice at creating critical thinking questions so that the remainder of the unit is high-interest and student-driven).


Below is the assignment:


Last week, you chose one of the attached articles and created divergent questions. For today and tomorrow, I want you to choose TWO more and create questions about them.



Once again, I have attached SIX articles that touch on topics that will arise throughout the unit. Please choose TWO NORE of the SIX articles to read. As you read, list at least TWO questions that come up for EACH of the TWO articles you chose.


AFTER, respond to one persons questions with a meaningful and thoughtful response. (You can answer their questions or challenge their questions).


We are available throughout the day for extra help. We can't wait to see the students' questions and comments so that we can all engage in meaninful dialogue and build interest about the unit!


Have a great day!

All Classes - Journal, 3 days a week

Due on May 8th.


Students are assigned write one page about their thoughts, feelings, and how they are spending their time, three days a week. This will be for a project grade, and due on May 8th. You may write it electronically, on a Word Doc, in an actual journal, a composition book, or even on looseleaf.

Some guiding questions, for when you don't know what to write:

    • What did you do today? Who did you speak with?
    • What is one big question you have about what's going on in the world?
    • What would you do today if you weren't practicing social distancing?
    • What, if anything, do you miss about school?
    • What would you tell our leaders if they came to you for advice right now?
    • What is one fear you might have?
    • What are you grateful for today?
    • What is something nice you did for yourself or someone else today?

Students, these are uncertain and difficult times, and also an important moment in history. This is your chance to document it, and also to process some of the big feelings you are having. Remember, your parents and teachers are here for you!


Please feel free to contact myself or Mrs. Cresciullo anytime at Jbelliveau@schools.nyc.ov and MBrookmeyer@schools.nyc.gov, respectively.
