It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Mrs. Marilee Applebee for inclusion in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Teacher Fellowship Program. I have no doubt of her ability to effectively perpetuate, promote, and deliver high quality Holocaust education. As I reflect upon the goals of the Museum Fellowship Program, it becomes abundantly clear that Marilee Applebee is a perfect fit. Her passion for Holocaust education is palpable daily. Passion has become a term that is oftentimes overused marginalizing its intended meaning; however, in Mrs. Applebee’s case, its connotation includes a purposeful commitment, sincere desire, and a core focus to ensure students have an opportunity to experience
Morgan Cook Unbroken Book Review 1/16/18 Mrs. Campbell Honors Literature PD 1 “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand was published in 2010. From the first chapter i was hooked. Hillenbrand’s imagery and style caught my eye and pulled me into Louie’s story with no hesitation. I absolutely loved Hillenbrand’s structure in this book and it was much better than others i have read. She did an absolutely wonderful job of creating this time period with just her words and it’s one of my favorite things about this book.
Raina Telgemeier’s Drama should be included in the Little Free Library due to its heroic lessons, Telgemeier’s confidence boldness in attempting to socially broaden the minds of young readers, and its established popularity. First off, Drama exemplifies heroic values such as strength and persistence that can be found in the book’s role model, Callie. Callie Marin, the main protagonist, is faced with many challenges during her seventh grade year that she easily persists through thanks to her unwavering strength. Callie has had a crush on her friend Greg for a long time, and when he finally kisses her, he blows her off and gets back together with his ex. Callie is upset at first, but she has to get over it since she needs to put all her energy into a show she is helping out with.
Dr. Cheryl Steele--A "Goddess" of Teaching In previous articles, I’ve written about the importance of connecting with teenagers long after they have been ‘officially’ yours. Perhaps they were in your charge when they were in middle school or junior high, and now, they are in senior high, they have graduated high school, or maybe have gone on to graduate college, get married and have children of their own. Regardless of any of those landmarks (as significant as they may be), still recognizing your kids from when they were early teenagers can be extremely empowering to them. I was blessed enough to have a PERFECT example of such an adult who was one of my mentors in my early adolescence. She kept in touch with how I was doing after graduation
At the end of the play, The Diary of Anne Frank, the last statement said is, "In spite of everything, I still believe people are good at heart.". This is something said by the character Anne Frank, a young girl about the age of 13 during the Holocaust. Another key thing to remember throughout my essay is that Anne worked with what she had and she turned the worst moments into beautiful ones. Anne Frank was an enormous influence for a countless amount of books as well as plays not to mention, she also tremendously influenced history. I put trust in the idea that the reason she said, "In spite of everything, I still believe people are good at heart.
I believe that “I Stand Here Writing” by Nancy Summers constitutes as a literary narrative. The strongest evidence is Summers’s use of personal stories which are scattered throughout the text. She includes a couple stories about her schooling, life as a mother, and her career as a teacher. In fact, Summers uses these narratives to convey a deeper message about the skill of writing. The best example of this is when Summers expresses how she came to love the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and how she used Emerson’s ideas to set the tone for the rest of the passage.
Picture books are an ideal format to introduce students to the wonderful world of reading. One of today’s masters of picture books is Patricia Polacco, a prolific author whose words and pictures have inspired and delighted countless children. In fact, many of her books are autobiographical in nature, thereby allowing her to share her own stories and experiences with her readers. Two such titles are Thank You, Mr. Falker, in which she pays homage to the special teacher who helped her learn to read, and Something about Hensley’s, a tribute to the magical general store and its equally marvelous shopkeeper in her hometown. Heartwarming narratives and charming artwork are characteristic of all of Polacco’s books, and these two are no exception.
