Student will watch one TED talk each day for 30 days and compile a paper with a list of talks you watched with the date. At the end of the paper you will choose your favorite five talks and write a sentence or two about each of those five telling the reader why it was one of your favorites. Titles should be single spaced but this program wont let me single space for the example. The rest can be single spaced also this time. Upload to canvas by the due date. The easiest way to do this is to just keep a running tab of the links each day. To find Ted talks just use your favorite search engine and plug in a keyword using Ted talks at the end. For example, "artist Ted talks", or "Ted talks about education". Turn it in on Canvas https://canvas.instructure.com/courses/949622/assignments/6109532.

Top Five

Sir Ken Robinson, Do Schools Kill Creativity?, https://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity (Links to an external site.). Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

Adora Svitak, What Adults Can Learn From Kids, https://www.ted.com/talks/adora_svitak (Links to an external site.). Child prodigy Adora Svitak says the world needs "childish" thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids' big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups' willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.
