United to Learn, whose mission is to change lives by transforming the relationship between schools and community, has a cool project led by Cate Goglia, a Hockaday high school student working toward her Girl Scout Gold Award. She’s leading the effort to create a video series by students for 15,800 Dallas ISD elementary students. The goal is to make distant learning less distant during shelter-in-place due to the coronavirus. More than 100 videos have been posted so far. Here are a few submissions from Hockaday high school students:
- Cate is creator of the series and did some reading videos.
- Leena M. is a United to Lead fellow and creator of several soccer and reading videos.
- Kylee K. does many art videos like this watercolor sunset.
- Emma K. reads “Corduroy” and asks good questions at the end.
If you’re a high school student who wants to participate, here’s the overview info page about how to submit a video. You can earn service hours. Categories include
