Have you ever allowed yourself to dream about your future and then shared that dream with someone else? How does it feel when someone believes in you? How does it feel when someone doesn’t believe in you? Students were asked these questions and more during a Transition workshop at ESU #11. Students and teachers were introduced to Tel-A-Vision. This program encourages a student to explore eight areas of his/her life ten years into the future. The student uses a “screenplay” to assist in the exploration of the eight areas. Next, the student creates a vision video.
According to the program’s founder and creator, George Johnson, the video shows students what they are capable of accomplishing in their lives. Through the creation and daily viewing of the videos, students begin to exhibit more goal-oriented behavior, more focus, and more reason to stay in school.
