EDUCATE THE HEART

Thanks to Have fun with your English blog for showing this beautiful video with the transcript.



When a child is born we do everything we can to protect them, nurture them, love them. A child’s heart and mind are fragile. As they grow we want to teach them everything that we know; we send them to school to fill their minds with wonderful knowledge, to give them the tools they need for life. At school they get a taste of what things are like in the world outside; there’s friendship, romance, disappointment, embarrassment, discrimination and bullying. But are the tools we give them enough to prepare them for this world? We have an enormous responsibility and an amazing opportunity. If we truly want to prepare them for the world outside, we must also educate the heart, because to navigate the world outside with compassion, acceptance and tolerance, we need to teach them compassion, acceptance and tolerance. This can begin in ourschools and it can start today; it can happen at hockey practice, dance class, at day camps and music lessons; and it’s already happening around the world with astonishing results. If we want our children to grow into socially and emotionally capable young people we must ask for a balanced education that putsimportance on educating both the mind and the heart.

3RD TERM PROJECT

My favourite music
This is probably a daring project as it involves the use of a new tool and the use of computers. Anyway, I think it is well worth the effort and the most important is to learn english, so let's get started.
We are going to use a tool called Glogster, which creates multimedia posters that can include text, images and video. For your last project, you will have to create a glog about your music preferences; you can either choose a singer , a group or a type of music. Look for information on the web and decide what information, pictures or videos you want to include before you start. Here you are some examples so you can  get a better idea . Click on the links and wait, as they may take some time to upload.
I think you should also have a look at the following tutorial, please read it carefully and go back to it if you have any questions.
When you are ready, you can register on the following link. Remember your nickname and password, you will need them.
The deadline will be on 22nd May, all the corrections have to be done before then. Be original and creative. Good luck!


Do you want to have a break? You can start playing then.
