The intention for this project was to give the students a voice and an opportunity to anonymously share what is going on in their lives. These 5th and 6th graders were told the intention of this project prior to filling out the cards. A group of 6th graders chose the cards to film and actually filmed the videos.
We feel as though this should be shared with schools everywhere to open an honest dialogue with teachers and students. As educators, we are teaching the whole child, not just the academic side. These are hard discussions to have, but at the same time, so important.
