ONEDAY EVENT - TUESDAY 10 NOVEMBER 2009

 

Invite your students to join in and document the day of 10 November.  It's very simple - we ask students to document whatever they do on this day, in writing, photography, videos, and/or other media. There is no special format. If their English is poor, they can participate with images alone. (You may have heard the English expression, "A picture is worth a thousand words.")  

Invite them to share their day with us, any way they are able!

 

Topics may include anything your students might do between Midnight on 9 November and Midnight on 10 November: morning routines (grooming, chores), breakfast, getting to school (if it's a school day), school routines, after-school activities, jobs, family life, friends and neighbors, home, evening meals, snacks, evening routines, etc. If Tuesday 10 November happens to fall on a special day - a holiday, a school trip, etc. - that will be great to document also!

 

Susan Copen Oken, a documentary photojournalist whose work has appeared in Life Magazine, Sports Illustrated and a variety of books (including the 1986 bestseller "A Day in the Life of America"), will help us prepare. Over the next six weeks she will help provide ideas, exercises, and tips on the event website at http://www.onedayinthelife.org as well as in iEARN's One Day in the Life forum at http://foro.iearn.org/iearnforums/oneday .

 

When 10 November gets close, we will create some discussion areas in the One Day in the Life forum where students will post their work in the days and weeks that follow the event.

=======================================

 

ONE DAY IN THE LIFE PROJECT - ONGOING!

 

One great way to get involved before (and after) 10 November is to join the ongoing "One Day in the Life" project themes. These have no time constraints - students may document their lives right away, and participate in any of the themed discussions. It's also a great way to prepare for 10 November!

 

Just recently, students have begin working a variety of daily life themes, including "Mealtime", "Morning Routines", "Where I Live" and other topics. Invite your students to join in! You can choose from the existing themes, or you can create new topics related to daily life to document.
