How can surrendering make me a hero?
Before starting the project I will do a back to back, face to face protocol. I will also have some teaching on surrender and watch a Ted Talk on heroes. We will be doing 3 mini projects within one project. We will discuss what heroes and anti-heroes are – in the world and in the church. Once we’ve established what our baseline is for a hero we will begin. First, students will research a Hero of the Faith (their choice) by answering questions developed by the class. They will bring the answers/research and an artifact about that person. Second, they will think and choose a hero in their life to interview. We will work together as a class to produce questions for the interview. Third, students will do a self-reflection answering the question “where am I a hero in my life?”. The end product will be a gallery walk with students choosing to enter one of the 3 mini projects. I hope to have some of the student’s hero’s come for this event.
CONNECTIONS AND PERSPECTIVES:
This project connects to our school’s mission to emphasize for the students that they were made on purpose for a purpose. Students are getting the opportunity to look at past, present and future choices; they will explore how a life committed to Christ leaves a legacy.
