For the week preceding the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.'s life, we sought for students to "Think Again". This idea was in an effort for students to consider alternative perspectives, rethink failure, and truly participated in reflective practice.
While pre-teaching the lesson on Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy of effective protest, we asked students if they have ever felt some type of judgement in their life. With the power of teleconferencing, students were unafraid to share personal experiences. With their peers behind them and open minds in front of them 18 miles away, we heard things that completely blew our minds. As adults, we often forget how difficult being a child can be.
After hearing the heartfelt and vulnerable words of our students, we encouraged them to put these sentiments on paper with Adobe Spark Video. We then helped them edit their words and voices in iMovie by paring their audio with their images.
