To first introduce the internship, I'm in one of the English 130 workshops where 10 students attend to get extra help on their assignments, and the mentors that I am working with are Kasey and Cristina.
So far, I've noticed that the students are really quiet and like to keep to themselves and their groups. I'm not quite sure if it's because they're not that comfortable with us yet, or simply because they like to just focus on doing what they have to do. Either way is fine with me, but it would be nice to get them to talk a little bit more. I'd like to start to get to know and build some kind of relationship with them Hopefully over time, that can be reached.
The first week I walked in, the students had already written an essay on one of their assigned readings. After the essay, the students had to make an artifact that represented themselves and honestly, they did such a great job at it. Some made videos that you can tell had a lot of effort put into, someone made their artifact using Piktochart and someone even made a comic strip. I was very proud of them and the work they put into their projects.
