Students will be inspired hearing from Salva Dut, the main character of Linda Sue Park's famous novel, A Long Walk to Water. Salva's message is one of hope, faith, and perseverance. The theme of this talk is to keep walking, no matter how difficult the challenges in your life are.
For this activity, students watch the video and take notes. Then, they create a Keep Walking poster full of their favorite, inspirational Salva quotes. Hang them in your classroom as a reminder that perseverance is key to overcoming challenges in your life.
