I love it to death....so grateful to have this opportunity to bring AVID to our site...
I had to share this cool activity called "Walk a Mile In My Shoes"
The kids design their own shoe (any type of shoe, boot, ballet shoe,
cleat, dressy, athletic, etc...)
then they answer the following questions and write them
around the shoe:
what do I like to talk about?
what do I dig my heels into?
what labels do I wear? (son, brother, Volcom, Quicksilver...these can be labels as a person and labels they like to wear...)
where do I do my soul searching?
where do I find my support?
what things am I always running around doing?
what keeps me on my toes?
what brings water to my eyes?
what situations cause knots in my stomach?
today the students presented their shoes in class...it was such a
great activity! what a great way for the class to get to know each other :)
