All Things Teen
We're all about teenagers, because we're all about making the next generation, the greatest generation. We've worked with teens for over 20 years, and in that amount of time we've racked up some great stories and life lessons, and we simply must share. So if you're in the mood to read about what the next generation is up to, check back frequently. Enjoy!
Imagination at Work
“The original quality in any man of imagination is imagery.” –G. K. Chesterton
“You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” —Mark Twain
Is imagination important to our youth? You can go online and find hundreds of quotes from painters, scientists, moralists, writers, and almost anyone else you can think of who all have high regard for the human imagination. Albert Einstein said, “Your imagination is your preview of life's coming attractions.”
Yes—imagination is immensely important. Just think of Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell—without their creative imaginations..no lights…no phone. We must encourage the imaginations of our youth! They are the future inventors, artists, politicians, and community advocates.
We have recently engaged the imaginations of our students through Service Learning Projects. Students have come up with creative ways to meet the needs of their community and their world. Projects include Easter Baskets for the Chambliss Children’s Home, a shoe drive for Nigerian children, and even beautification projects like planting flowers at a local school.
What are some ways you have engaged the imaginations and creative strengths of your students?
