Ms. Duran-Chea says, “Our students have been learning about how we can harness human energy. They learned about potential and kinetic energy, as well as renewable energy sources.

  • It’s time to #ShowYourSchoolworkNYC! Today Ms. Nadler is sharing an English assignment from eighth grader Alexander Maldonado at College Point Collaborative #inQueens. 
This semester, the class has been exploring questions about our shared future as a planet and a society. “Alexander responded to the prompt ‘Are we doomed if coral reefs perish?’,” Ms. Nadler explained. 

“Students are building fundamental reading and writing skills,” says Ms. Nadler. “Alex's work stands out because he doesn't simply restate the line from text; instead, he wholly responds to what the line means, extracting from it phrases and words to expand upon.” 

Great work, Alexander! Have schoolwork you’d like to show off? Check out the #ShowYourSchoolworkNYC initiative on Morning Bell, and see how to have yours featured!
