One of our students is sharing an idea about the importance of reading and I couldn't help but be reminded of this story of reading as a family activity.
Our TED Ed Club members have some great ideas to share.
Lying is essential to society.
Technology is too prevalent today.
Magazines overemphasize a beauty that is unrealistic.
Owning a pet can make you healthier.
Bible clubs should be allowed in school.
This is an incomplete list from our students. I cannot remember each one right now, but all have great potential. I am interested to watch these ideas develop as details are spelled out and stories are told. As in all ventures, it is the story that will connect the audience to the speaker and the ideas.
Next week we will have our first courageous speaker to model what we have been working on for the last 6 weeks.
I will keep you posted as we learn this process and give students a format to voice their thoughts and feelings on an idea.
If you have the opportunity to start a TED Ed Club, I highly recommend it. Students truly emerge into engaged and mature citizens right before your eyes. It is an honor to witness the process.
