We shouldn't judge a book by its cover and we shouldn't do the same with our fellow human beings either. Because underneath every person's outward appearance is a story which contains lessons for us to learn.

Radio is the heart-warming movie about the relationship between Coach Harold Jones and James "Radio" Kennedy. When Coach Jones befriends Radio and has him help his high school football team it brings joy to the sidelines.

But not everyone thinks Radio's presence is the best idea. Eventually, Radio is told he can't be around the football team or at the school. And Coach Jones questions whether trying to help Radio was the right thing to do.

Radio Companion Activities highlights the importance of kindness, integrity, and truth and shows the effect that one person's love can have on others.

There is no doubt this truly magnificent story will impact anyone who sees it!

In order to complete these activities students will need to watch the movie Radio, which has a rating of PG and a run time of 1 hour and 49 minutes.

WARNING: This is a DEEP LEARNING lesson plan to help students employ a LEADERSHIP approach to SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING.

The activities in this lesson will challenge students to move closer to mastery in the following skills: leadership, cooperation with others, creativity, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, problem solving, and judgment and decision making.
