What Matters

How do you like this assignment for some 9th graders at Arapahoe? http://pages.citebite.com/a1m1w7v6f1jxk (Notice that's a CiteBite link?)

Here's how the teacher describes the assignment:

"
All semester long, my students have been examining the big question of “What Matters?” What matters to them in their own lives, what matters to them from each piece of literature we studied, and most importantly, how does that all relate to the world around us. At the beginning of the semester, I told my ninth graders I wanted them to create a Photo Story showing the connections of what matters. "

This link (top) takes you to the blog post that contains the links to the assignments. Give them a listen. And if you can, comment. It means SO MUCH to the students to hear that someone is reading/watching/hearing their words.
