Community Diary Project/ Sonoma Responds

The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) is partnering with the Sonoma County Library to collect primary sources related to life during COVID-19. We invite you to consider taking advantage of this opportunity with your classes. This is an important learning opportunity for our students and provides a valuable service to our community.

Prompts should connect your students' experience to your course content. This has been a very challenging time for all of us but it has also been a time of reflection for many as we are forced to slow down and contemplate what is currently happening and how it makes us feel. Sheltering-in-Place; social distancing, school closures, job loss and much more; these are part of what we are experiencing right now. As the days turn into months, what will the future look like as we exist in the “new normal”? How are we handling the situation before us? One approach could be personal reflections with prompts related to the course. Additionally to reflections on living with COVID, you can include prompts about civic life, BLM, fires, etc. This is about both your class content and living in this unique time period. For history’s sake, it’s important to capture these moments and document them so that future students and historians have access to them. Thus, the idea is to write about these experiences. It is also more than fine for your students to share experiences that are not about Sonoma County. Perhaps most of our students will not be local during remote instruction, and this is more about the time than the particular location.

The students' work will be shared with the Sonoma County Library to be cataloged and preserved for future generations. The library will accept writings, art, or images digitally. Contributors will need to complete a “deed of gift” form in order to share items with the library. The Community Diary Project/Sonoma Responds Fall 2020 Showcase in Partnership with LARC will be held 12/1-12/6. For specific questions about the virtual showcases, please feel free to contact the LARC Director, Loriann Negri,

If you would like to discuss further or would like your students to participate in the summer or the spring, please contact
