Happy Monday, all. Many of you may remember that my students last year prepared and presented injustice speeches. You may remember, too, that I was quite proud and pleased with their products and performances. Even more, a few may remember my mentioning that we were going to try to put together a “highlight video,” if you will, showcasing students’ topics and positions on their self-selected injustice topics. Well, I am pleased to announce, due entirely to the hard work of Ms. Kiersten Gasper, that said video is now complete, and I have posted it below.
To provide some context and explanation, the kids were asked to share a line from their speeches, a line that they felt captured the essence of their message. Sadly due to logistics and time running out on us, we were only able to get about a third of all students to contribute. Still, we felt it was enough to put the piece together. As you watch the video, please keep in mind that you will not have the full context or specific topic from each student’s speech, but what you will have is a thoughtful, honest perception from this generation. I am so proud of my kids. Enjoy.
Thank you, Kiersten for your all your hard work and expertise. Couldn’t have done it without you, kiddo. Thank you for “living into the A” I gave you in June for your final Independent Learning Project.
