What's happening in Berkman's School Counseling Program?

What do you do with an idea?

With my third through fifth grade students, we have been thinking about the difference ideas can make. We read the book What Do You Do with an Idea? In the end of the story, the narrator says that ideas can change the world. We talked about all of the ideas that people have had that have changed the world in amazing ways. I also talked to students about their ability to change their own worlds with their ideas. Then we made "idea portraits" to show some of our amazing ideas.
