We are still looking to extend our coverage of coronavirus. Now that we are in mandatory lockdown, many feelings are associated with this. We want to know what students are doing, how they are coping, etc. Gather 5 interviews (and pictures if possible) PER WEEK. Put these into a google doc and upload to google classroom. Classroom codes are listed below.
Talk to seniors, athletes, band members, UIL; people that missed out on things they were preparing for. Find out someone that has learned something new over the break. Maybe they taught themselves a new skill. How many of them have parents that are driving them crazy? Did they have a strict routine? Did their sleep schedule get all out of whack? We are looking for story ideas. Find out something interesting that could perhaps develop further. I still want to produce a Gauger (online if needed) for our seniors and we will need story ideas to fill pages.
Google Classroom codes:
1st period: ojih7fr
2nd period: a2b2snh
3rd period & 5th period: nyoz22a
6th period: z6dbnrd
7th period: vaukxzt
8th period: o6rp533
Interview at least 3 people every day this week. Post your findings, quotes in a google doc and email to me @ [email protected] BY 9:00 P.M. EACH NIGHT. WE HAVE THIS WEEK TO GET THIS FINISHED. Find out something interesting.
Here are some ideas:
Tell us what you’re doing throughout the day. What would you normally be doing right now? What are you doing instead?
Day by day coverage of what it’s like to be quarantined with one person. All day. All ages.
Look at social media posts. What are people doing? Talking about? Are they stuck babysitting? Are they worried their parents will lose their jobs? How much toilet paper do they have? Did anyone’s family stockpile toilet paper? We need a picture. How much water? Food?
What about the kids that are only children? They are by themselves all day now (which probably doesn’t even bother them lol) Foreign exchange students? Especially from Italy? How are they dealing with this? Are they worried about their family back home? What’s life like for them?
What are you worried about? Get people talking. They will give you good quotes if you keep questioning them.
What are you binge watching? What apps have you downloaded? Have you done any puzzles? I’m going to put this on facebook also and see what pictures we can get sent in from parents.
