Video Resources 

Here are several quick curriculum-focused videos on how some of our DreamSpeakers use what students can learn in school in the “Real World.” Our YouTube channel contains hundreds more clips from our flashchats that cover everything from core subjects to college and inspirational testimonials from our speakers. These clips serve as a fantastic springboard for introducing a new unit or for independent study. Check it out here!

DreamTheme Wheel: Spin for Success

Our speakers often talk about the life skills they rely on to reach and achieve success in their careers. DreamThemes are these life changing personal skills and mindsets that students can begin using now as they plot their first steps to a promising future. The DreamTheme Wheel is a fun and easy tool you can use to acquaint students with these DreamThemes. Apply to host a flashchat to gain access to our DreamTheme Wheel lesson plans!

Play DreamBingo!

Play DreamBingo with your students to further enhance their understanding of our DreamThemes. This is a fun and interactive game that uses inspirational clips from flashchats and the game of bingo to engage students with our DreamThemes. Apply to host a flashchat to gain access to DreamBingo.
