Harms Students BElieve THEre is GOOD in the World
The Harms students in 3rd through 5th grades took a simple piece of art and put it into action. Looking at the plaque with the dual messages, students discussed both meanings and what it meant to do both.
When they received the t-shirts we extended the conversation of the two messages by watching and discussing the video, Why I Think This World (of negativity & hatred) Should End, by Prince Ea. Students were urged to share this video, along with their shirts, with others and discuss the messages. The t-shirts strike up conversations beyond our classroom and even our school. I have even received requests from teachers and parents to order t-shirts for themselves.
Now our students are actively doing good deeds and talking about them. After the holiday break students posted the GOOD they did and the GOOD they witnessed in the world. Recognizing this and celebrating it can only make the GOOD a more permanent part of their daily lives.
