Help me give my students A Midsummer Night's Dream, Secret of the Andes, and support materials for our weekly book club.
Hailing from Eureka, CA, my public school students are industrious and creative. They strive to learn about and contribute to their community, both locally and globally. They are a community of joyful scholars. Other than developing their intellects by seeking academic challenges, they also work to be well-rounded. They play sports, despite our lack of a gym. They organize and plan field trips, visiting local businesses, farms, and art organizations. My students host many events for our K-8 school community (Peacemaker Day, Lapathon, etc.), provide service to local organizations, and mentor younger students. Embracing their Montessori education, they engage in peaceful conflict resolution on the personal, community, national, and international level through empathy-based practice and education. It is amazing to help these young, self-directed students become independent thinkers and resourceful innovators.
Our students find empowerment as developing young adults and responsible citizens by running their own business to help pay for field trips and MMUN.
They develop and sell quality hand made products and busk at community events, singing and playing instruments with a set list they developed and practice independently. They will appreciate any help they get with their worthy effort to serve as solution-oriented ambassadors of peace.
It depends on your perspective. That's one perspective. Not from my perspective. How important is it to learn about life from different perspectives! Our adolescent program students learn about the human processes of self-discovery and self-creation by reading quality literature that explores these experiences from different perspectives, in varied cultures, under a variety of circumstances. The students learn to analyze and synthesize what they are reading through book club discussions and Socratic seminars.
At RCM, we place the highest value on asking well-crafted, high-level questions that help our learning community come to a deeper understanding of the characters in the stories, and, then, to a deeper understanding of ourselves and the global community in which we live.
We come to a greater understanding of ourselves and our world by exploring universal themes in a variety of literary settings. By studying the foibles of high society in Shakespeare and the challenges of a young boy in the Andes, students begin to understand their individual journies, as well as their connection to others who are similarly navigating their ways through their own journies. By reading quality, entertaining literature about people far different from and, yet, surprisingly similar to themselves, the students learn to appreciate the value of reading and the insight it brings as they examine their lives and the human condition from wide-ranging perspectives.
