The Study Guide Project
Professor Parini’s words above capture the central mission of our project. What can we as individuals and as a society learn from Kennedy and Frost, their words, their example and their lives that is relevant today?
We believe the film, book and website we have created can be potent teaching resources. Resources that can help inspire students of all ages to study history, politics and the power of words. Resources that can introduce students to another era in our politics; to the meaning of aspirational leadership; to the relationship of poetry to power; and to insights into the craft of one of America’s most beloved poets.
The objective of the on-going Study Guide Project is to facilitate study of the legacies and civic values of President Kennedy and Robert Frost that remain relevant to life in the twenty first century. To that end, we seek to collect and share discussion questions, lesson plans and topics meriting further study. We invite your participation in this voyage of discovery.
