    Tech 3 Snapshot

    Students are divided into two sections. I am teaching the Graphic Design section. Students will study and practice different graphic design skills as they create a guided tour of thier neighborhod and its unique landmarks. Students will work on photography, audio and video recording, and writing skills as they complete this project. Students have also been give access to the Adobe Creative Suite from home until the end of May allowing them to continue working and developing skills on these apps started before the shift to distance learning.

     Wheel Classroom Snapshot

    For Wheel, students will use the third trimester to complete a changemaker action plan. Students have studied the way various people have made impacts in their communities. They have also participated in actions like making cards for meals of wheels, residents at the Redwoods or howling at night to take action. They will then develop their own plan to be a changemaker and implement it. The second major project of this final trimester will done in partnership with the Mill Valley Library. Students will create a "time capsule" that caputures their experiences during this historical time we are living through. The goal of this time capsule project is to have student experiences added to the Lucretia Little History Room. These activities incorporate technology, character and global education.
