My Favorite Inspirational Videos for Students

UPDATE (6/23/15): You can find an updated version of this post with additional video suggestions here.

I thought this might be a good time of year to summarize and emphasize some of the most valuable resources I have reviewed so far.  Today, I am offering a list of my Favorite Inspirational Videos for Students:

#3:  The Power of Words – I also mentioned this in yesterday’s post of Inspirational Videos for Teachers.  It is good for everyone, in my opinion, to be more thoughtful about what we say.  If our communication is not having the effect we desire, we should reconsider the way we are choosing to deliver our message.

#2:  The Kindness Boomerang – I have never done a post on this one.  I read about it recently on Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day, and knew right away that I would like to add it to my blog.  Although it is somewhat simplistic, it does show how our actions can effect many more people than we will ever know.

#1:  Times of India Tree Ad – This is a powerful video that shows how important one person can be in effecting change.  It says a lot – without any words.

Here are links to my original posts on #3 and #1: The Power of Words and Times of India Tree Ad.

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.
