This I Believe.
Have you heard the new series "This I Believe" on National Public Radio (NPR)? It's a series of radio essays based on a program created by acclaimed journalist Edward R. Murrow in the 1950s. Not only are the essays back, but now there are teaching materials to go with them.
NEA was an early supporter and collaborator on the project, which includes a curriculum guide with lesson plans, writing prompts, writing tips, and a discussion guide. The producers hope teachers will use the writing materials with their students and submit their essays for possible broadcast on NPR.
In the original program, Murrow invited Americans from all walks of life (including students) to submit essays on their most strongly held beliefs. The producers of the new program hope the revival will "create a picture of the American spirit in all its rich complexity."
This series can be heard every Monday, alternating between NPR's "Morning Edition" and "All Things Considered." To learn more, listen to essays, and download teaching materials, visit www.npr.org/thisibelieve/getinvolved.html.
