The FCPS Portrait of a Graduate asks students to understand diverse perspectives. But, to understand diverse perspectives they need to see a perspective. Caitlin Tucker shares an amazing way she solved this problem. She created a FlipGrid (a super easy way for students to share selfie-videos). And then she shared it with her twitter followers and asked fellow teachers to have their students comment on them. By the end she had over 120 different responses from classrooms across the country.
Where do you start if you don’t have Caitlin’s 30,000 Twitter followers? What if you started with another classroom in the same school. Or another school in your pyramid. Or a local high school?
