  25. 25. Suggested meeting time: 30-60 minutes (Some of you may choose to combine this meeting with meeting #2.) ! Before the meeting: ● Create a TED-Ed (ed.ted.com) account if you haven’t already. All members over 13 should aim to have their own account. ● Watch the first TED-Ed Club Lesson (http://ed.ted.com/on/vaY6FipN). Your group can choose to do this before or during the meeting. ! Guiding questions ● What is your name? How would you describe yourself? What are three things you are passionate about? ● What do you and your club members hope to get out of your TED-Ed Club experience? ! Materials ● A device to take pictures ● Index cards ● Pens ● Copies of this guidebook (one for each member) ! Meeting activities ● Take a few minutes to create a name badge on an index card. Write your name and at least 3 things that you are passionate about. ● Gather in small groups and introduce yourself to your fellow club members. Learn each other’s names and get to know each other. ● Share your reasons for joining a TED-ED Club with the group. Let people know what you’re interested in and what you’re passionate about. This will help your club members give meaningful feedback when you begin developing your presentation idea. ! What will you have created by the end of your meeting? A name badge that lists 3 things you are passionate about. You will bring this to future meetings so that everyone in the club knows your name and interests. ! After meeting #1: ● Browse through the TED Talks (www.ted.com) /TED-Ed Lessons (ed.ted.com) to find ideas that speak to your passions. ● Facilitator: Please send a photo of the name badges from different club members to TED-Ed at TEDEdClubs@ted.com. 6 #1 Introduction week: What’s your passion? It’s tough to give a good presentation on a topic that you’re not passionate about! This meeting is all about getting to know your fellow club members and spending some time identifying and articulating the ideas that motivate each member of your group. Later on, each club member will present and record their own idea worth spreading in the form of a short TED-style Talk.

  30. 30. 8GREAT GRIPES
  31. 31. 8GREAT GRIPES 1. No one explains what being gifted is all about -- it's kept a big secret. 2. The stuff we do in school is too easy, and it's boring. 3. Parents, teachers and friends expect us to be perfect, to "do our best" all the time. 4. Kids often tease us about being smart. 5. Friends who really understand us are few and far between. 6. We feel too different and wish people would accept us for what we are. 7. We feel overwhelmed by the number of things we can do in life. 8. We worry a lot about world problems and feel helpless to do anything about them.
