Just thought I would share this awesome resource with everyone. My prac teacher would commence the day with sharing an inspirational video and creating a short discussion on how we can each better ourselves in some small way.
For example, on Tuesday afternoon students seemed to become agitated as they believed the work was too hard (it wasn’t!) without really trying. They would simply look at it, and on first glance would simply give up and not proceed any longer. Does this seem to be occurring more frequently in the classroom?
Then comes Wednesday morning and my prac teacher was excited to share with the class, a video of a man who competes in the wold ping pong championships with no arms. The story and video was incredible and gave the message to work through tough situations without giving up.
