"To This Day" by Shane Koyzciak
Watch a powerful video on the impact of bullying and engage students in the Lesson, "Words Create Our World."
In this lesson, students explore the power of words--spoken or written, verbal or nonverbal, by both public figures and everyday citizens of the world. While some words convey hope and positivity, others reveal hate and prejudice. Students identify the effect of both positive and negative words in their own lives and in society. Through analysis, composition, and performance of spoken word poetry, to address an issue of social justice, students raise their consciousness of self, community and world. An enduring Understanding is that words have power.
