Project Description

DRIVING QUESTION:

How can surrendering make me a hero?

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

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.
