This I believe essays

Since 2011, essays by Gordon seventh graders, originally written for a class assignment, have aired as part of Rhode Island Public Radio’s This I Believe, which airs weekly every Wednesday.
The “This I Believe” essay has become an annual assignment in seventh grade humanities, and the team at RIPR chooses a number to develop into radio segments.
The process has become part of a series of spoken word projects for seventh graders, culminating in the June Night of Words event.
