City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection

My students at the Beeber Middle School in Philadelphia are collaborating with a 4th grade teacher and her students at Independence Charter School to create montage to our city entitled, Brotherly Love. Brotherly Love is a musical response to the continued high levels of violence in Philadelphia.  Brotherly Love hopes to respond to this violence by doing an inquiry on what does brotherly love mean. I used poetry from The Best Teen Writing of 2012 as muse and mentor text to explore memory and the theme of love.
