This viral YouTube video got me thinking…what would our students tell their future selves? Why not find out?
You could have your students record themselves talking to their future selves about…well anything! You could do this as a way of having your students introduce themselves at the beginning of the year, or you could have them talk about what they are thinking regarding whatever it is that is going on in the news, like their thoughts on the presidential election, for example. Or maybe they could talk about what they are learning in class. If they are researching energy sources, for example, they could predict what they think the future will hold.
If you’re interested in trying something out, let me know. I’d be glad to work with you.
