I was put in charge of the launch. YAY!
Here's what I've selected to wrap it all up, a clip from the movie Facing The Giants. This powerful piece ought to motivate our students to do their best and to go the distance. There are SO many parallels between this scene and the Giant that is our State Assessment. I actually got teary-eyed as I watched this coach, his challenge, the star player, and the teammate on his back. I can't wait to see their reactions!
This motivational snippet is dedicated to kids everywhere who'll be facing their giants during testing for the next couple of days and to their teacher-coaches who've worked so diligently to prepare their teams for the big game.
