Adventure!

Adventure!

Welcome to 2021, our dear Educators!

That New Year feeling of fresh starts is upon us! With the stress of 2020, I think most of us are a little nervous as to what 2021 will hold. The trepidation and anticipation are palpable at the outset of any adventure. Who knows where 2021 will take us and who we will be at the end of it? All we can do is create a map for where we want to be and navigate the future as best we can. 

Onwards to adventure!

Jack London’s writing transports readers into a world of adventure! This week’s GNN article talks about the adventure of Jack’s life and how that became the theme of his writings. 

It’s a great opportunity to ask your students to reflect: In what ways have the circumstances of their lives in the past year changed them, inspired them, redirected them? 

If life becomes art, how have the next generation of artists been affected?
