Who Is… KIVA? Amazing Student VIDEO
Growing up I was a huge Family Ties Fan!
I loved all the characters in the show and who they have become off screen.
We all have a cause near and dear to us – something that affects someone we love or something that we have read about that really draws us in.
Micheal J. Fox is such a fantastic role model. He has been advocating for Parkinson’s since his diagnosis by creating awareness and also raising funds. If he did Who Is NOBODY? I wonder what he would add to represent his project and help turn NOBODY into SOMEBODY?
Mallory, played by Justine Bateman was another one of my favourite actors on the show. Being a teacher, I always think of her whenever I play a DVD because she had the following great line: ‘You know school’s going to be good when your teacher rolls in the VCR!’
A picture says a 1000 words, so how many does a moving picture say?
I think it’s great to mix up teaching methods with audio-visual once in a while. Hours and hours go into every minute of a well-made documentary, old news footage or a movie about the topic you are teaching. Playing a relevant DVD can be an effective way to wrap a chapter you’ve taught by pulling in all the lose ends and presenting it in an exciting format that stimulates the senses.
The other day I logged onto the Who Is NOBODY? Facebook Page and saw a video posted by an awesome student named Ozzy and to concur with Mallory, I knew it was going to be good.
Ozzy’s message is:
Helping people is fun & Kiva makes it easy!
Do you know anyone who has helped to empower people around the world with a Kiva Loan?
