Ralston Valley High School - This I Believe

This I Believe
Based on a 1950s radio program of the same name, NPR hosts essay podcasts on its This I Believe Website and invites Americans to submit and share their personal philosophies, Similarly, in freshmen English classes, RVHS freshmen composed essays that explored their values and reflected on the events that shaped these beliefs.

Using GoogleApps for Education tools, students recorded their podcasts and embedded an mp3 player code of that podcast into this collaborative website. Many chose to edit and add unique audio tracks as well.

Roy Disney American Film Writer, Producer, Nephew of Walt Disney, said, "It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are." Reflecting upon one's values and the events that shaped them can strengthen and solidify the foundation of one's character.

We invite you to listen; our stories are diverse and personal. Perhaps they will inspire you to reflect upon your stories and philosophies as well.
