Cultivating Gratitude in Young People

In my search for all things gratitude, I came across this awesome video, Cultivating Gratitude. It is a co-production of The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT with WGBH on PBS Learning Media. The collection is designed to catalyze reflections and conversations around some of the fundamental human values. This program is part of The Center’s Young Peace Leaders and Compassionate Young Leaders initiatives.

The reflections by the students are so empowering and I love seeing this activity from start to finish. It is pretty amazing what 8th graders can do! Try this activity in your classroom. What a great way to decorate your room at the beginning of the school year!
