'Teaching Whittier' launched in tandem with National Poetry Month


"Our first implementation of this curriculum will be with Amesbury's eighth-graders when they come to visit in June for annual History Days," Costello said.

By placing the curriculum on the Whittier Home Association website for free download, Costello said her organization hopes to expand its reach throughout the world, fulfilling its mission to be a nonprofit, educational organization striving to engage diverse audiences in the life story of Whittier in his roles as Quaker, writer, legislator and an abolitionist.
