Operation Day’s Work

Since 1964, Norwegian students have worked one day each year to give money and solidarity to fellow students around the world.

This year, Operation Day’s Work is cooperating with the Norwegian Society for the Conservation of Nature (Norges Naturvernforbund) and Nature and Youth (Natur og Ungdom) to support projects in Nigeria.

Use the information from OD’s websiteNature and Youth and the films from the Norwegian Society for the Conservation of Nature here and here, and write your own blog post where you imagine presenting Operation Day’s Work to someone who has never heard about this organization. You should also present this year’s project, in your own words, where you include some of the things that stayed with you after having seen the films. Discuss why this particular project is important and why students at Fagerlia should participate.

Post your blog before Monday, September 4th.

New School Year

Welcome to a new school year at Fagerlia!

We are excited to start this new project, where both you and we will use blogs to share information, curriculum, assignments, and answers. This is a first for us, and the learning curve might be steep. We hope you will learn a lot and that you all will have some patience with your more technically challenged teachers.

Let’s get started!

The first order of business is for you guys to create your very own blogs. Remember, this is an educational blog, which will be evaluated, so keep it tidy and professional. Use wordpress.com and choose a free account. When making your account you can choose whether to have a public, private or hidden blog, but no matter which you choose you have to share the link with your teacher.

Most of the assignments given will be answered on your blogs, all of them will be read and be Godkjent/Ikke Godkjent, and some will be evaluated with grades. You will be notified which ones will be graded.

So, get to it! Make your blog, include links to other public blogs of your classmates, as well as our teacher blog, and maybe even a map, so you can see where your visitors are from.

After having created your blog, your first blog assignment is simply this: Write a post about the UN sustainable development goals which we have talked about in class. Your post should include which goals you think are most important, and most interesting for you to work with – and why. Also, share your thoughts on how you would like to work with this goal.

Good luck!
