  • Milkweed Editions and River of Words have created a free, downloadable teaching guide to help teachers and students learn to write great poetry. Written by Louisiana master teachers Harriet Maher and Connie MacDonald (2006 River of Words Teacher of the Year), this full-color, 75-page guide, which uses the River of Words anthology River of Words: Young Poets and Artists on the Nature of Things as a text, will help students get beyond pre-conceived notions about poetry, inhibitions and fears, excessive reliance on rhyme, and the thorny host of other impediments to creativity and expression that a poetry assignment often invokes. Connie and Harriet have created a fun, investigatory, challenging set of classroom activities that we hope will help you to inspire your students to explore both their "inner" worlds and the complicated, endlessly fascinating "outer" world around them.  Download it now!

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunties!!!
Debbi - Can you please forward this to the Everest group or include it in your next newsletter? I wanted to share an opportunity that some of the teens or moms might be interested in. My family has recently gotten involved with the Discovery Clubs of Alabama. This organization provides an opportunity to share Jesus with kids in public schools all through out Jefferson county. The Discovery Clubs conduct an after school bible club in 100 schools in the Birmingham area. Volunteers can serve as little as 2 hours per week (one club meeting) or choose to get more involved and help with multiple clubs. It's a great opportunity to share the love of Jesus, to share God's love with kids who may not attend church or ever hear God's word, to show love to a child who is hungry for positive attention. I'm including a link to their website below. Training for volunteers begins in August so it's not too late to get involved for the upcoming school year!

To serve as a volunteer, you must be at least 16 years old so I thought this would be a great opportunity for some of the teens in our home school group. Also, moms who may want to get involved but have kids younger than 16 are also welcome and can bring their children along with them when they serve! I have been assured that my twin 10 year old daughters are more than welcome to come along with me when I perform my volunteer duties.

I hope some of you will prayerfully consider this opportunity to share God's love in the public schools with children who so desperately need to hear it!

Art Appreciation

Arts Appreciation
The Alys Stephens Center has developed an Arts Mentoring Program to introduce middle school and high school students to the arts. Local artists and arts educators serve as volunteer mentors and are paired with students to attend specific performances throughout the Alys Stephens Center's 2009-10 Season.Students will participate in facilitated group discussions ("Talk Backs") immediately following each performance, and on occasion will have the chance to meet the guest artists. This unique arts learning experience is designed to create a safe environment in which to discuss and share ideas, values, and feelings, which the arts stir, and to encourage leadership and critical thinking.  In addition, the group discussions enable students to interact with professionals in the field. This year-long program will culminate in a final event for participants, parents, and mentors.
