  • What are our children learning?

    The question is not whether children and teenagers are learning from today’s media but rather what are they learning?

    According to the April 2006 issue of Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, TV, movies, video games, and Internet use have become a “major public health issue” among youth today and that “[this] intersects with many other issues that are critically important to child health, including violence, obesity, tobacco/alcohol use, and risky sexual behaviors.”

  • Students delight in poetry competition

    When Eminence High School English teacher, Cara Puckett, offered me the opportunity to be a guest judge for her students’ Poetry Out Loud competition, I eagerly accepted.

    Participants were to choose two poems from a list of thousands spanning hundreds of years and representing all the different types of poetry.
