"Advocate for Yourself" is the theme for week three of Forman Summer 2017. During morning meeting each day, students practiced mindfulness in the form of meditation, body scan, walking meditation, and mindful listening. As students become more aware of their strengths and more comfortable with themselves as learners, it is important for them to also be able and willing to speak on their own behalf.

Forman Summer 2017 is off to a great start! The theme this week is "Know Yourself," so students have been given opportunities in the academic classrooms to identify their strengths, challenges, goals, and passions. For example, in Mr. Bucklin's writing classes, students are exploring Thoreau's connection with the natural world and how they can use the trees, rocks, and the stream as symbolic representations of themselves.
