Symbols and Walking

“The NVIV (Next Vista Inspiring Video) series of posts are written by Rushton Hurley and designed to provide students and teachers with fascinating discussion prompts.”

In Symbols and Walking, Rushton features the El Camino trail in Spain. Many people walk the trail for different reasons.

Rushton gives the following prompts to accompany this video:

“What symbols did you notice? How would you connect what you noticed to the Camino?

If you were to create a path in your part of the world for people to walk, where would they start, what would they visit along the way, and where would they finish? What symbol or symbols might you choose for the path?

Have you ever tried walking a long way? Why did you do it, or try to do it, if so?”

I found this very interesting because I have had several hiking friends who have walked the El Camino trail. I loved hearing stories about it and seeing the joy they experienced it as they talked about it. I like the idea of students thinking about trails they might want to walk and what they would hope to see.

Please check out the video and think of other prompts you might come up with. Please share.
