Level A: Self Portraits




First, we turned off the lights.
Next, we drew the shadows.
Then, we turned on the lights and wrote about our lives.

Level B: Jessica Cox's Life

In November, all learners at Arlington studied the topic of disabilities.

Level B studied the life of Jessica Cox. They researched her life on the internet, watched videos, and read her life story in class. Then, they worked together to write about what they learned.

Here are some photos of their final projects.
