Eighth Graders Work on Belief Statements

The eighth grade English students have been working on belief statements, similar to the NPR project “This I Believe” essays.  The student’s mindset unit started with belief statements and concluded with a synthesis essay combining their experiences of overcoming a seven day challenge with what research states about mindsets and overcoming obstacles. This day in class, students are creating their belief statements into a collage of statements for the entrance to South Middle School.
