The poem "Praise Song For The Day" read and written by Elizabeth Alexander was the best "teachable" moment of the inauguration. I used it in my classroom to help students set personal and educational goals for this upcoming quarter and for the entire year. There are so many lines in the poem that empower/inspire individuals. As Ms. Alexander stated-"anything can be made, any sentence begun."
Wow, what a powerful piece of writing to share with students. There are no more excuses for anyone not to succeed in school or life. Everything is possible!
