Timely Tidbits from Janet and Marianne
We are happy to inform you that Teacher Centers have been funded in the New York State budget. THANK YOU again for the work you did to advocate on our behalf.
We are now in the process of putting together our catalog of summer courses and courses that will be offered during the 2015 -2016 school year. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for topics.
“A teacher affects eternity: he can never tell where his influence stops.”
“We carry within us the wonders we seek around us.”
Sir Thomas Browne (Grandfather of the author)
Thomas Browne introduced precepts to his class to interest them in essay writing. He defines a precept as “words to live by”. At the beginning of every month a new precept was introduced, discussed, and an essay was written at the end of the month. At the end of the year Mr. Browne asked his students to send him a new precept which could be from a famous person or a precept they made up. After teaching for 10 years he has collected about two thousand precepts. In his new book, as told by R. J. Palacio, 365 Days of Wonder, he has shared 365 precepts. Enjoy this book, and perhaps inspire your students to write.
Wonder, 365 Days of Wonder are available in hard copy and e-library formats. The e-Library also has the Julian Project and other supplements.
