After I made the video, I thought more about it and said to myself “wait … I can do more than that.” It was kinda just the bare minimum info my students needed and they (and you!) deserve more.
So I dug in.
I wrote up a full, in-depth article and posted it the next day, giving more information and more insight.
It’s only about 1,000 words, so there’s definitely still more to be said (maybe in a future Newsletter issue?), but it’s a good start and puts the information out there where it can be found a little easier than on a dinky lil YouTube channel nobody watches. Yet…
In the speeches that I’ve seen so far today, some students did what I did in that video.
They got the basic information across.
They did the bare minimum.
A couple, though, did what I did in the article.
They dug in.
They gave more insight and better ideas. They showed more thinking and, ultimately, they were more persuasive.
Today’s challenge: what’s one area where you’re doing the bare minimum?

I’d really appreciate it if you could share it, too – it means a lot!
