A poem & a picture

I've been helping teach an after-school poetry class for teens, and one of the assignments was a "found" poem composed of song lyrics from artists each student chose. Students were also tasked with choosing from a long list of provided themes to focus their writing, and to come up with a picture (drawn or nabbed from the internet) to accompany their poems.

Movie Monday: The Aeronauts

THE AERONAUTS has been described as "GRAVITY meets FREE SOLO," and though I haven't seen the latter, this seems to be a reasonable comparison. There's drama, love and loss, realism and historical significance, female empowerment and the championing of the underdog archetype, and just straight-up adventure, which I found highly entertaining.
