Bullying Upstanders

5/5/14

Aside from Genius Hour, I am a part of the Bullying Upstanders. The Upstanders are a group of six students from our Language Arts class who started a group who helps kids who are victims of bullying get through their tough times. About two weeks ago, we had a spirit assembly at school. The Upstanders were doing a campaign on Autism. We had to talk about what we did, who we were, and a few facts about autism.

Blogging Challenge Four

             4/9/14
                                                       Student Blogging Challenge Four:
                                                         What's All the Blogging About?

                                         The week's blogging challenge it to blog about something you are passionate about. I am very passionate about being involved with children with autism. Down below is a link to an article I found about teaching autism awareness. The website is called The Guardian posted by Valerie Hannah on March 31, 2014. This article is called How to Teach....Autism Awareness. In the article, it talks about different ways to help an diagnosed person with autism to focus. I agree with all of the routines and ways they talk about to use.  They sound very productive.
