Since starting this academic year, Friday mornings have been horrid for me. Trying to teach a group of students that have no interest in the topic they have chosen to study, are exceptionally mean and judgemental and have little to no concern about how they make others feel has been pretty draining.
As the final project for the year, my students were set the task of producing illustrations of various communities. They were instructed to draw the outline of 5-6 people from their chosen community on the back of their paper, then cut around the silhouettes and add detail to the front, to create a pop-up community.
The students pretty much refused outright to do any work for 5 weeks, so I decided to do the project myself, using the group I was 'teaching' as my chosen community.
