Helping our kids, Healing ourselves "We want to let educators throughout the country know that we are producing a story about student response to the Virginia Tech tragedy. We will digitize every student-produced picture, essay, story, letter or other creative effort which is sent to us. It doesn'tmatter if it is class-produced or individually created. After we digitize what we receive, we will send the entire archive to the Library of Congress. We will begin production on the story right away. We will place it online as soon as we have enough materials to make it meaningful - hopefully by late next week. If the project catches on, and we continueto receive student creations, we'll keep adding to the story. We will, in short:1. Give teachers a positive way to talk about this week's awful events;2. Give students a place where their expression of support, fear and sadness can be displayed to the rest of the country; and3. Use the student contributions to create an online memorial honoringthe faculty and students who died at Virginia Tech. If you think this is a good idea, please let me know and please start to spread the word. All contributions should be sent to my attention,as follows:

Warmest regards,

My heart goes out to all of us who experienced this terrible event through real connections to the university. There are several opportunities to participate in the healing process happening across the country. One, which is probably more helpful to parents, teachers, and children is being taken on by Carole Bos of AwesomeStories. AwesomeStories is a website created by Carole Bos, a trial lawyer to provide a forum for teachers and students to access historic narratives and primary source materials on the web. Carole said in an email to a fellow moderator on The Teacher Leaders Network.
