As I continue to try and find unique ways for the students to respond through writing, I stumbled across an old Ted Talk today. It was by Adora Svitak, and the topic was "What adults can learn from kids". At the time Adora was only 12 years old! My students were amazed at her speaking ability. Their job was to then respond to that same question on their blog, after watching the video. You can read their responses here. Hopefully Adora inspired them to think "outside of the box" and do great things!
