In preparation for their citizenship unit this year we got the students to come up with I will statements. We had them watch Spencer West and the Kielburgers from previous We Day Events. Following the videos we brainstormed, did some group work and allowed the students to come up with statements of I Will... Each of these statements were supposed to be large and transformative for them. All of the statements did not end up being as grand as we planned. I think this works in our favour. It will allow us to revisit them in the future, see which statements were weak or easily accomplished and which ones withstood time and are still ongoing.
Here is the video we produced with their I will statements.
