          Tell the World there is Hope
                    Author: Cecilia M. Estoque
Life is beautiful, but through media's overemphasis on problems,
chaos, and crises around the world, its real loveliness fades in the
eyes of the present generation. Reality bites indeed, but that
should not keep you from participating in TELL THE WORLD
THERE IS HOPE. Imagine the cascading effects your
participation bring to the whole community if you commit yourself
to show the good side of life by demonstrating what one can do to
make a difference. It's never too late as long as we act and
sincerely commit to “do one good thing” for humanity. One
simple act of kindness can bring us a long way, especially if we
aim to create synergy- of- hope avatars around the world.
Still to Come…
                     Learn with Friends

                     Portraiture
This is a unit with two parts; human portraiture and animal
portraiture. Each part emphasizes learning about artists
and their work (art history and culture), analysis of facial
proportions, (aesthetic perception), creating portraits
using digital and traditional materials (creative expression),
and evaluation of artwork (art criticism). These elements
of art will be addressed using games, quizzes, on-line and
on-paper drawing, and writing activities designed to
encourage students to view and evaluate each others
work.
                     Learn with Friends

                  Save the Planet
     Start Doing Something About Global Warming
The primary goal of this learning module is to educate the
students and classes that participate, about global warming,
the scientific basis for global warming and basic
understanding of energy consumption necessary to affect
change. This should include the ability to spot wasteful
management of energy, as well as to gain an understanding
of the methods and tools now available to reduce one‟s
carbon footprint, and to put together a plan of action for the
individual, the family, the school, and perhaps the
community and the cities in which the students live.
