The Power of Words

To conclude our week of video posts I’ve chosen a video that apparently everyone had seen but me a couple of weeks ago.  And, maybe your students have seen it too.  But have they discussed it?  Have they talked about apathy and homelessness as well as the impact of powerful language?  There are many lessons in this short story.

TOI Lead India “Tree”

I keep thinking of videos that I would like to share, so I thought I would make that my theme this week.  This particular one could lead to great conversation in the classroom, despite the fact that many of us do not understand the language in it.  Some possible topics for discussion:  apathy, being the change we wish to see in the world, working together.  Every time I watch this video, I am motivated to make a difference.
