In December, students of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) class at Second Start in Concord read the book Heart on Fire: Susan B. Anthony Votes for President as part of their ongoing Connections series. They used this book to prepare for their High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) exam. Students preparing for the HiSET are required to take subject area tests in social studies, English, mathematics, science, and writing.
Remembering, reading, listening, and looking are at the heart of several projects supported by New Hampshire Humanities with events this spring. In Dublin, the historical society will hold a facilitated local story collection event to prepare for the town’s centennial. In Rindge, the Cathedral of the Pines has teamed up with Ingalls Memorial Library for a two-part series based on the words and practices of beloved American poet Mary Oliver.
