English 10H Talks Are a Remote Learning Treat!

Earlier this month, students in our English 10 Honors courses finished work on the fifth annual “English 10H Talks.” Modeled after the well-known Ted Talks, these student presentations aimed to answer the question, “What Matters?” Students chose topics that reflected their passions and interests, aiming to educate and inform the audience in under ten minutes.

In order to share these impressive presentations with friends, family and the community, students recorded them using FlipGrid. You can access the presentations through the following link: https://flipgrid.com/1341bd45

Congratulations to the students for completing these terrific presentations. A big “Thank You” to Lauren Blum for her work organizing, inspiring and helping her students through their work.
