How has science class been going for you?
With the 2020–21 school year now underway, New York City public school students in blended and remote learning settings across the five boroughs are completing engaging school assignments with outstanding schoolwork worthy of celebration—and we want to learn all about it!
This November, we’re launching our new “Show Your Schoolwork NYC” series, the NYC Department of Education’s yearlong online celebration of great student work completed by City public school students in grades K–12 throughout the 2020–21 school year.
From now until June 2021, we’re asking City students, families, and staff members to send us their stories, photos, and videos, of the work K–12 students are doing for their classes this year. Select works will then be featured right here on The Morning Bell as well as on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages throughout the school year.
To make a submission, fill out our official “Show Your Schoolwork NYC Intake Form.” Here, you’ll be asked to provide us with some quick information about the student whose work you would like us to highlight. We also ask that you include at least 3 photos and/or 1 video with your submission—you can choose to submit media featuring the student, their work, your relationship to the work (i.e. did you help complete it) and/or any background regarding the assignment (i.e. prep work, why it was assigned in the first place, etc).
Some examples of the kind of work we would feature include:
- Homemade volcano projects (yes, even FAILS would be considered);
- Programs created for coding classes;
- Art projects from some of our youngest students;
- Outstanding or even school record-breaking performances for remote physical education classes;
- Performances from students in music/theatre classes; and
- Book reviews of challenging books (in accordance with grade level)
