    Poetry

    April 6, 2020

    A chance to learn about writing poetry from the one of the longest-serving poetry editors of a national magazine in American history. Come join us for this popular course in April which is National Poetry Month!

    Poetry has the power to inspire. Poetry can give witness to social injustices or show us how to live mindfully and compassionately. Poetry is therapeutic. For those who are hurting, poetry has the power to heal. Many people begin writing poetry as part of a healing process. By writing about what has injured our spirit in the past and about how we feel about ourselves presently, we can diminish suffering and begin to rediscover joy. This course will explore how writing poetry can inspire not only us, but others, how it can increase well-being, and how it can be used to teach tolerance, understanding, and compassion, including compassion for the earth and all living things. Learn more about the course and register here.

    In Teaching for Purpose, Heather Malin explores the idea of purpose as the purpose of education and shows how educators can prepare youth to live intentional, fulfilling lives. The book highlights the important role that purpose—defined as “a future-directed goal that is personally meaningful and aimed at contributing to something larger than the self”—plays in optimal youth development and in motivating students to promote the cognitive and noncognitive skills that teachers want to instill. Based on a decade of research conducted at the Stanford University Center on Adolescence and infused with the engaging voices of purposeful youth, Teaching for Purpose offers a fresh, inspirational guide for educators who are looking for new ways to support students to succeed not only in school, but in life.
