Big Thought is a non-profit organization in my area that goes alongside schools and provides encouragement and resources to schools, classrooms, even parents to help the kids in this inner-city environment learn through the arts. They have helped third graders learn to write through dancing, helped low-income kids go to summer camps filled with enriching activities, they’ve libraries create and staff story-times or performances for the kids, created a community center for teens. In an economy where much of the fun or imagination in education is being stripped from the schools (class sizes are rising and arts/recess are being cut back in our area), Big Thought has been a beacon encouraging communities to be more creative. I love that!
