Reflection: Real World Applications Final Steps: Finishing Up PSA Storyboards - Section 1: Finishing Up the Storyboards


The very best thing about this project is that it was born of the students' own beliefs about our school and its bullying problem.  I had no preconceived notion of what was going to come of reading Mr. Lincoln's Way.  I was really focusing on the elements of fiction but the kids were so interested in Eugene's story that it made me wonder what their feelings were about our own school.  After reading and discussing the entrance ticket in the previous lesson, I knew we had to do something and one thing led to another until we arrived here.

A lesson to take from this- lessons need to move and change with students' needs and interests.  We could have continued to discuss plot events and conflict/ resolution, but being in tune with my students led to richer learning and a more personal experience for them.  Once these PSAs are released to our building for teachers to show, my students are going to become "celebrities" and their hope is that they will begin the change that they feel is needed at our school.
