Title of event/project:
What's YOUR personal spark?
URL to project/event starting point:
We are "hosting" an event through a Padlet (where people from all over the world can post videos, pictures, text boxes, that relate to the following question): "What's your personal spark? What makes you- -you?" In the words of Dr. Suess, "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you." What makes you special? Students from all over the world will share their "sparks" or qualities they are proud of within themselves. Students will see examples from all over the world and build intercultural awareness and respect for each other!
Project/event directions for participation:
Find creative or simple ways to elicit from students, staff, families etc. what makes them special! Post a video, photo, thought etc. on the Padlet link. Then check back to review and share with your students how people's sparks are similar and different throughout the world. Great discussion starting point for valuing people's individual strengths and building appreciation for others and our own talents!
