Words are bigger
on the inside
"Words. Words. Words."
Hamlet may have had mixed feelings about the power of words, but his creator, Shakespeare, certainly did not. We will explore the power of words - reading, writing, and speaking them to achieve a greater understanding of ourselves and the world.
As a lover of words and a writer, I know how to create a classroom where we will work collaboratively to travel through the hidden meanings of words, symbols, allusions, and structure to discover ourselves and our world. I know because I've been there. I am a world traveler, a road tripper, a musician, a dancer, a martial artist, and a very proud geek, nerd, and father.
Mr. Ostrovsky's (borrowed) philosophies on how to be a human being:
Never be cruel.
Never be cowardly.
Remember: Hate is always Foolish and Love is always Wise.
Always try to be Nice, but never fail to be Kind.
Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.
