Reflection: Student Ownership Celebration of Learning Presentations (Days 1 to 5) - Section 6: Day Five: Leadership and Accountability


One of my other classes has a community partnership with a local business called LeadLocal. Though their ConnectEd program, my class developed a digital media competition that would promote great teaching and teachers for the nonprofit Tucson Values Teachers.  TVT would use the videos to promote a crowdfunding campaign for school supplies. Over 100 student entered the competition. This is the 2nd place video mentioned in the presentation, "Why do I choose Tucson High".

I want my student to try new things and take risks.  I was really proud of the effort she put into this competition.  She did it out of pure desire to learn or curiosity. No grade was attached--not even extra credit.  How do you get your students to take risks or try new things?
