This I Believe

This I Believe from NPR

As we are finishing up a great unit on beliefs, students are now really looking into what they believe. They’ll be writing an essay and creating a podcast about their own beliefs. As our model and inspiration, we’ve spent time looking at the National Public Radio site: thisibelieve.org. Our students’ goal is to create an essay like one on the site, record it and send it in.

The essays range from beliefs on religion to baseball to the power of kindness and saying hello. One of our favorites was a kindergarten child who read off 3o of his beliefs.

Students from all 3 classes have done some great reflecting on the essays.
