Celebrating our Strengths

This short video, "Raising Small Souls," came from an assistive technology listserve to which I belong and it is important enough to share with parents and educators everywhere.

It speaks to the power that we have, as educators, to encourage (or thwart) our students' unique abilities and strengths. There are many truths in it that we just accept as reality. My approach is always to identify and build on student's strengths. Use what motivates and engages them!

There are so many possibilities....

Great video and story, Karen. I watched it with Hannah and sent it to Clay.
