Empowering Writers

February 2015 Lesson of the Month

This month, students will research February’s celebrated heroes with one important question in mind! What type of influences – and/or media – prepared these epic heroes for their courageous roles? Then students will explore their own influences and how they might adjust these for their future. Melody Beattie, a revered self-help author, said, “The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.” Older students will be challenged to look at their own goals as well as goals of their heroes.
