Project | Grade 10 | English

Suggested Levels: Grades 10-12

This project engages students in the reality of aging populations. The project contains a series of 4 journal entries and 1 enhanced podcast.

This project explores the life of one particular senior living with dementia. Her son shares his journal entries in which he documents the decline of his mother from a committed activist for the environment and member of the Canadian ski team to a woman struggling and needing help to get through each day.

The final production in this project requires students to meet with a senior and hear and document their story. They then choose their medium for sharing that story with their peers.

Included in this project:

  • 2 Audio clips: Maude's Journals

  • 4 Written Journals
