"Be Courageous" - Part Two
*When I first say this video, I knew my students had to see it.
*One of my goals is to help my students be as brave and as courageous as they can be.
*Each Thursday I feature a different video with a "life lesson" in it.
*After viewing the video once or twice, we chat a bit about it as a group.
*I then have the writers record their thoughts in their writer's notebooks.
*They can write their thoughts, reactions, connections, wonderings, learnings, or whatever is on their mind regarding the video.
*Encouragement is also given to reflect on the "message" of the clip.
*After about 5-10 minutes of writing, we listen to a few of the students share what they wrote.
*It is my hope that through these "life lessons", my students can become the best young people they can be.
