"To know how to suggest is the great art of teaching. To attain it we must be able to guess what will interest; we must learn to read the childish soul as if it were a piece of music. Then, by simply changing the key, we keep up the attraction and vary the song." ~ Henri Fredric Amiel

Happy Birthday Star-Spangled Banner!
In 1814, the lawyer, Francis Scott Key, penned the words to what he
called, "In Defense of Fort McHenry." It became our national anthem
in 1931. My students know the story very well and sing it well too!
