The way Sage spoke, and the words she said, really captured other people's attention. It was really inspiring, and gave me goosebumps.
Great job! They points Sage made about education and how much American's take advantage of what we have and get. The stories of Ado and Mary were amazing.
I really liked Sage's TED Talk. The way that she gave real world examples and was able to show us what she meant, was really powerful. It was extremely helpful and I was able to understand what she meant. I really liked it.
Sage had an amazing story. I think having the exchange students was eye opening. Looking back at my classese, I now realize that many students do not respect their teachers. I completely agreed with this message. I also think that Americans do not realize how good life is in general.
Sage,Your presentation gave me a whole new perspective on how I view the world. I thought your story was amazing and I also think it is showed how much we take for granted. Great Job!
Sage- the story you chose was very moving. Maybe try to make more eye contact with the students. I think the message you weretrying to get across is value our education. With the stories of kids from Africa it make me realize how blessed I am and how lucky I actually am. You handled yourself well for having a stressful moment before! :-)
Sage- I missed the fist part of your spech and I didn't know what your speech was about until 3 min in. You did have your speack memorized and I could tell that you really cared about your subject.
I love how Sage incorperated her life into her talk. I think her slides are very interesting. I like that she really cared about her topic and wanted the class to understand. Sage had a very intersting topic that really caught my attention. The talk really moved me and made me want to do something about education. I now know the difference between education in diffferent countries. The value of education is important and I never realized how much we take school for granted. I will take Sage's words and start to value my education.
Sage- Great job. This is a message that more people need to hear. It was wonderful to hear your own personal experiences about this subject. This really enhanced a great presentation with an inspiring message.
Wow, your speech was truly moving! The examples you gave of students in Africa made me feel really guilty for not appreciating what I have. Great job!
Sage did a great job connecting the larger idea to the specific story. She also spent equal time on the story and on the bigger idea. Her closing was very involved and challenged each of us in the class. Good job Sage.
Sage,You had a great point to make. You made it well, too. I liked your sharing of personal experience with the exchange students. You helped us to realize how lucky we are, and how little we are taking advantage of our education. Good job!You stumbled over your words a little, such as saying "um" and "like" a lot. I recommend a little more practice so you can remember your words like that (*SNAP!*).Good job, and great idea in using your own experiences to improve your talk.-Matthew Cheney
Sage- Great real world examples! It was exciting to hear about Auto because we all met him! Great topic choice- it really was able to connect to everyone in the room!
Sage did a great job in showing how much she feels education is important to everyone, not just Americans who count education as a chore rather than a privilege. She told a story about how she hosted kids from Africa, and how amazed they were at our school and how blessed we were to have the chance to learn every day. It was like a wake up call hearing what these kids go through every day to get to school, not knowing if they would even get to learn or not, while we take our education for granted. Sage stuttered a bit in the beginning of the speech, but she did a great job later on and in proving the point of what matters to her: value in education.
Sage- The TED Talk was very inspirational and motivating. You picked a great topic to speak about. I really liked the incorporation of your story about Otto and Mary.
Sage's TED Talk was very interesting. I like how she provided a perspective of American education different than an American student. It made me wonder how I could change my thoughts on school and try to enjoy it. It was a very interesting TED Talk.
I feel that Sage's TED Talk was one filled with expierence and one that we should all take to heart and learn from.
I liked how Sage talked about her expeirences with the children from Africa. It was very heartwarming.It made me want to take my education more seriously.
Sage- You gave an amazing TED on the value of education through how other people lack it. It gives a great comparison on how Americans take education completely for granted. Thanks for pointing that out to all of us!
Your story of Otto and Mary, the students from Afica, really improved the understanding of your TED talk. Her emotion when describing Otto at Barnes and Nobles really connected and furthered the idea of how we dont really value education as those in Kenya. Overall it was good.
Sage you did amazing you really knew your speech you had great points that really opened my eyes. She really made me think about school and how special it is but how we don't appreciate it. Nice job!!
I think you bring up really good points, I enjoyed how you had that first person example of what others think of our education. I could also tell that you really cared about what you were talking about.
I thought it was cool that Ado said he wanted a book of science and God. It really shows how much we take for granted and that we should use every opportunity to educate our selves. Good job Sage!
That made me feel very depressed with Mary's story. I would say that but my tlak was the same topic and realized that edu was imprortant in 6th grade.Overall, great job.
That was great. The stories of Ado and Mary were incredible, and you tied them flawlessly to a major problem in our modern education. It really opened my eyes on a major problem that kids have on the way they view education.
Sage, you did a great job! You're subject really made me think!! I didn't realize that I shouldn't grudge coming to school! Thank you for showing me that!
Sage- I liked the stories you used! The stories you told about the foreign exchange students makes the audience think. It shows them how lucky they are, and how little appreciation they have for education. It connects emotion to your topic when use Otto as an example of appreciating education.It was good how you said flat out the kids in America do not apppreciate education.
Should WE Have to earn our education? NO, it is a right. Yes, we should be grateful, but is it our parent’s fault or the teenagers? In my opinion, both sides must make an effort for there to be change. Isn’t educational reform needed, as outlined in AWNM and our discussions? The story was a bit lengthy, and got a little off topic. Are you trying to say that Africa shouldn't have to work for education or that America should?
