As part of our class M.A.D project my students produced character education videos, following our M.A.D Innovation model. The question was: How could we teach ourselves and one another to become even better people? We researched and discussed different ways to answer the question. Together we came up with an idea to produce videos to help ourselves and others. A plan was developed; students would work in groups of two to become “experts” on a given topic. They would put their plan into action and produce a video with their own hand drawn images and then share with their classmates and the world! Once my students put their innovative ideas into action they made a difference for themselves and by sharing, made a difference for others! Our videos can be found on our website, Mr.C’s SharesEase: Character Education Videos.
Within two hours of sharing our first two videos, my students received the responses below….. EMPOWERING!
