‘To This Day’ by Shane Koyczan

A powerful TED talk by poet Shane Koyczan about growing up, life, finding identity and bullying. It includes his poem “To This Day”. Well worth the 12 minutes and five seconds of your life.

The second video below is Shane’s poem “To This Day” put to animation. This video is a bit shorter (7 minutes 37 secs) as it is only the poem. If you wanted to do something around bullying with students this video is very powerful and could be a great discussion point.
