FREMONT HIGH SCHOOL, PLAIN CITY, UT. 2018-2019.
Please consider sharing your American Experience project in the comment section below. As we work together to construct a collective American identity, let it be one that recognizes us as individuals and values our experiences as part of the narrative.
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
*This is in addition to posting on Canvas. I will grade your project/essay through Canvas.
** If you did a creative project instead of an essay, email a picture of it to me saying you would like to share it on this post. I will then upload it. (Sorry, comments are restricted to text only & I can’t change it).
AMERICAN EXPERIENCE CREATIVE PROJECTS
by Elise Machen
by Anna Anderson
Words float around on the white page
The black letters run together,
The teachers words float in the air
I try to catch them,
Only a few words stick.
These things sound like gibberish to me
Words that don’t compute.
Just let me write
And let me film
So that I may learn the skills I need
To grow in my career.
These things I learn in school
Don’t normally register within me.
I leave the classroom wondering why
I can’t understand what the teacher says.
Leave me questioning why
I can’t get good scores on the tests.
Hold the noose above my neck
As I sink lower and lower
In not understanding
And teachers thinking
