Ah Lo’s California Mission project is due today. Besides the full page essay he is turning in, he also has a visual art piece. He worked on it during winter break and completed a couple of days ago. He came up with this idea, drew the courtyard and the mission surroundings. With his directions, I helped him print / cut out the figures. I was able to control myself and didn’t “take over” his project. I kept remind myself that this is HIS project, and HE should be the one working on it. Today at school, I saw some crazy impressive dioramas, almost professionally done. I was glad I let him do it by himself.
