“The Pen is Mighty”

—Ben Franklinhandpen

“So, what do you do, Christina?”

“I write and teach. These come down to two things: love and voice enabling.”

“Why these?”

“Because there is a lot of negative out there that wants to silence, oppress, and control. Writing and reading (literacy) gives voice, a say, which lead to freedom.”

Thank you for stopping by, it’s so good of you to come for a visit.

~There is plenty of fun to be had. From games and links to NASA live, to educational lessons, free resources, topics for debate, book reviews, and books to buy. Your enjoyment is our aim here.~

Christina Francine Kennison is an enthusiastic NY State certified teacher and Assistant Professor of English & Writing. She has presented at Carroll & Sons Art Gallery in Boston about writing book analysis. She’s also judged work for authors and publishers. Publishing credits include creative and academic. She is a member of Buffalo-Niagara Children’s Writers & Illustrators (BNCWI).

The Spring 2016 issue of Journal of Literary Innovation published her analysis on why students across the nation are at Basic level as opposed to Proficient or Advanced. With the result of the Nation’s Report Card in mind, she argues writing is not where it could be nationally for a few reasons, the largest being a prompt for a right formula/answer as opposed to following individual voice. She believes individual learning style can solve world problems.
