Touching base with one of my favorite ELA teachers, he mentioned a video vocabulary lesson. My ears and interest perked up and I decided to sit take a few minutes to sit in and observe his lesson. When I came in, students were writing six words in their glossary: courage, require, moral, physical, virtues, and centuries. These words all tie in to the units essential questions:
- Does courage require fearlessness, or can a person be afraid and still act courageously?
- What is the difference between moral and physical courage?
- What other virtues may be as important as courage?
- Is courage rare in human history, or have many people shown courage throughout the centuries?

I decided to quickly create my own Video Vocabulary project to submit!
