English 10H Talks Permit Students to Share their Passions and Inspirations!

Earlier this month, students in our English 10 Honors courses finished work on the sixth 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/72e5e09a

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