Kids can bring a ray of sunshine into the life of a senior citizen by interviewing them in person or via Facetime or Zoom
A BOOK by ME
A BOOK by ME empowers students to preserve history, telling the story of unsung heroes in our communities. This is the perfect project to do in these unprecedented times. There is a very short window of opportunity to interview the WWII generation. Now is the time.
Students become more creative as they meet peers, experts and community members. They become more open to exploring different points of view on various topics. This project gives them the ability to learn about becoming a global collaborator. For the young participants, it's a guided cross-curricular project that gathers stories of people who do amazing things but have received little or no recognition. Students learn how to publish a picture book that is a primary source document with photographs and a biography.
Currently our senior citizens are home-bound due to Covid-19. Youth can show they care by showing interest in their story and interviewing them via FaceTime or Zoom. See our writer's guidelines and have students watch the videos for direction how to proceed.
Below you will find photos of some of our ordinary students who have done something extraordinary by writing and/or illustrating stories of amazing subjects
