Volunteering Update: “Don’t say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.” – Mark Twain

Today we asked our students to help create a class “Facebook page” as an exercise for their short story lesson on Characters.

This one is from our 8 a.m. 7th-grade class. It’s a bit tiny and pixel-ey because it was taken from my old old old mobile phone that is somehow exceeding the life expectancy that I predicted. (My prediction: two days. It has now been over 1,095 days, and I am sad.)

But that’s okay, because all you need to know about the photo below is that the character they came up with was an evil genius scientist with scars and a goatee and “Jimmy-Neutron” hair (as a student passionately declared), and this scientist likes screamo and classical music–but more importantly, she is a 32-year-old woman.

And this…was from the 2 p.m. 8th-grade class.

No explanations necessary.
