This I Believe

I believe...

Our "This I Believe" writing assignment is based on a National Public Radio program called "This I Believe" in which famous and everyday people write and present a short essay peppered with personal anecdotes on a belief they hold dear.  And this is our task: write about a core belief that defines who you are today.  As you begin to draft, look for examples.  Use example essays, or mentor texts, to guide how you will write your piece.  In fact, why not use the work of Haverford students! 


Over the last six years, a number of HHS students and teachers have been published on the NPR "This I Believe" website. In fact, even Ms. Ward was published! You can read Ms. Ward's essay and other Haverford teacher and student essays on the This I Believe website. Here’s a list of the current and former  students who have had their pieces published on the website:



So, let's get started!
