Guest Speakers

Write a blog post where you comment on the value of having visitors join our class and talk about different subjects, such as you have experinced this spring either via Zoom (refugee Kawthar Sheheda from Syria/psychologist Solfrid Raknes in Washington D.C.) or live (Fulbright Roving Scholar Renee Brekke Ebbot, who talked to about such diverse topics as water and identity). 

What can we learn from such visits that is different than regular learning in the classroom? Would you like the school to invite more guest speakers, and do you have any thoughts on how the learning experience in different school subjects can be broadened and perceived as relevant by the students?

Just Do It?

Look at this video from Nike: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drcO2V2m7lw

  1. What is NIKE’s slogan? 
  2. How has the slogan been tweaked in the title of this video?
  3. Who is the intended audience of the video?
  4. What effect does this video have on you?
  5. Explore the hashtag #UntilWeAllWin online. What is it about?

Then watch this video, also from Nike:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lomlpJREDzw

6. Towards, the end of the video, Colin Kaepernick says: “Don’t ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they are crazy enough”. What do you think he means and how is this shown through the video?

7. Then the NIKE symbol and slogan come up – what is the effect of this?

8. Finally, discuss the role sports and sports companies can play in fighting for a more equal world.
