Video Discussion:

Tell students they will be viewing the video titled Importance of Mentors. Explain that the video presents role models talking about why mentors are important and how students can seek them out.

Incorporate goal-setting into viewing the video by having students set a purpose for listening. For example, ‘I want to start a bicycle repair business this summer. I’m going to listen for ways I can find a mentor to help me.’

Activity Instructions:

  1. Create a mood board for yourself beforehand; choose a mentor and find symbols, words and pictures/images that represent them and that inspire you. Draw/write them or cut them out of magazines and paste them onto your mood board.
  2. Explain to the students why you chose this mentor. Then have your students create their own mood boards. Ask them to share why they choose who they did.
