Praise Song for Teachers: A Call to Action
White, Ariane
Harvard Educational Review, v79 n2 p321-324 Sum 2009
When she received our call for submissions, high school educator Ariane White saw it as a pedagogical as well as an artistic opportunity. Moved by the shift in the country's leadership, she chose to express her reaction in the following poem. She then used her poem as a teaching and organizing tool, sharing it with colleagues and students in an effort to inspire them to engage creatively with this moment in history. In her poem, a variation on the inaugural "praise song," White calls on teachers to renew their commitment to nurturing all young people in their pursuit to experience the richness of life.
