Last week we started our first official quest, "Power and Persuasion". The objective of this three week quest is for students to discover that they have the power to change the world. Last week, students focused on discovering some of their own physical, mental, and emotional powers through a series of group challenges. This week, they will take a look at what gives others their powers through watching famous speeches, exchanging hero "trading cards with their classmates", and interviewing one of their personal heroes. The culminating mission in week three will be for them use the powers they have discovered to write their own persuasive speech on a topic they care about.
