Most students are back at school. The September phase that I like to call “transition” is in place. It’s the settling in period- for parents, college students, and K-12’s alike. Teachers must experience this too. It’s about becoming comfortable with new terrain. In my experience, “transition” seems to last approximately two weeks.
I’ve played with a couple of visual translations of the “transition” state. They are all digital illustrations, and I’ve included the steps in the process of making them.
I’d love to illustrate your “transition” stories throughout the month of September. So, leave me a comment describing how you’re feeling about going back to school. How was the first day? Do you find yourself lodging with a particularly interesting new roommate? Will the first day of middle school vividly reside in your memory forever? Have you recently graduated, but still feel the pull of this back to school passage? Parents, teachers, you count too. How are you feeling about this annual autumnal migration?
