AudioBookProject: Think Big

I am teaching an academic reading course to college freshmen at a community college this summer and we are reading Ben Carson’s Think Big:Unleashing your Potential for Excellence (Zondervan, 1902). Ben’s model encourages people to “do our best” and “do whatever we can to help others”. He uses an acrostic of THINK BIG to illustrate the qualities of his philosophy… T = Talent…and so on… Anyway, I thought it would be neat to do the audio book to introduce an audio project for students… asking them to look for people in their lives (or in the world or in books) who emulate the qualities of Think Big and put them together into an audio project themselves as a way to help reflect on the reading and extend the meaning…

This is a really rough cut – prototype – of a project intro – I think I’d like them to use meaningful quotes or sections of the book too.
