Life Lesson #29 (You've Always Had the Power)

"You've Always Had the Power"

*It is Thursday and that means it is time for another "Life Lesson" video clip.

*I love this short, but powerful video clip.

*One intention I have is to show young people that "THEY" have the power to make the right decisions for themselves, make positive changes in their life, and be the best person they can!

*I'm always trying to find ways to help my students reach their full potential.  

*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.
