We still aren't quite sure how it is already May, and how we are already entering the final month of the school year, but a new month means a new edition of "What we're reading..."with a new selection of articles and stories that we have found to be interesting, inspiring, or otherwise thought-provoking. Some are new, and others have previously made the rounds, but we still found them to be worth re-visiting, and we do hope you enjoy spending some time reading these also.
In this month's review, we include an article on J.S. Bach, an interesting look at the myth of "learning styles," the academic benefits for religiously engaged adolescents, a few looks into parenting and raising children, and another great Easter music reflection from our own ILS Music Teacher, Miss Marie Landskroener! We hope that you again find these interesting or thought-provoking, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on any of these pieces, or any other news or articles you've found interesting lately. Let us know, and we might include them in our June edition!
