Writing for Healing and Growth (ONLINE)

Monday, July 6, 2020 | 10:00-12:00pm

Anyone who has ever kept a journal, written stories about his or her life, or just let the pencil do the talking knows that writing is indeed a powerful instrument for fulfillment, growth, and healing. Writing that comes from the heart and mind gives expression to that which is uniquely us. Experience the adventure of writing in this weekly workshop. The emphasis is on—but is not limited to—the writing of memoirs. This is not a critique group; it is designed to provide the support that people need to tell their stories. Strict rules of privacy and confidentiality will be observed. Leonard Tuchyner facilitates. Members only, limited availability, $15 per month.

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 | 1:00-2:00pm

Beginning Spanish  (Tuesdays at 1 pm)

In this year long course we use Conversational Spanish in 7 Days by Shirley Baldwin and Sarah Boas since it focuses on the most common, everyday situations you’ll encounter in Spanish-speaking countries.  Everything is explained in clear, concise English so if you have to miss a class, you can easily keep up with what we are doing in class.  We meet three times a month, and cover about a lesson a month:  during September-December we work with learning the present tense of regular verbs, in January we learn how to use object pronouns, and then in February add irregular verbs, in March stem-changing verbs, and in April reflexive verbs as we talk about daily activities.  In May we turn to a past tense, the present perfect, and then in June look forward, to the future tense.  Finally in July and August we end our year’s study of Spanish by working with the two simple past tenses.

If you are looking for a basic course in Spanish, and can commit to spending at least two to three hours a week (ideally 20-30 minutes a day!) studying Spanish, then this is the course for you!  But if you just want to learn a few phrases for travel, this course is more than you really want.

Intermediate Spanish  (Tuesdays at 2:10 pm)

In this year long course we use McGraw Hill’s Spanish Conversation by Jean Yates in the series of “Practice Makes Perfect”.  The text serves as a guide for expanding your conversational fluency through the use of realistic everyday dialogues.  The exercises in the text will be complemented by handouts that include personal questions which make use of the expressions presented in each lesson.  During September and October we shall be reviewing the two key simple past tenses, the preterit and imperfect, which were introduced at the end of the Beginning Spanish course.  In this course the student’s knowledge of the basic structure of the language will be expanded to include complex sentences with dependent noun, adjective, and adverbial clauses which often require the use of the subjunctive mood.

2nd and 4th Wednesdays, 10:00-11:00 am -  NOW BEING HELD AT THE CENTER!

Welcome to the program! Meetings are designed to encourage an enjoyable discussion about important issues. The discussion leader will highlight the major issues during the first five minutes of the event. Then input is welcome. The discussion leader will keep the conversation balanced, making sure that all who wish to speak have the opportunity. We are committed to sponsoring friendly and civil discussions. We want to respectful of all opinions, different points of view. All ideas about the important topics of our times are welcomed.

You are welcome to send suggestions about interesting topics for discussion. Please send your ideas to RBTKLB@gmail.com. In the heading of your email message, indicate “Current Events Suggestions”   

 

July 8 topic

Immigration Reform: Past, Present and Future.” Join Jim Donahue from the Charlottesville History Club for a vibrant discussion.  He will recap the various immigration measures that Congress has taken over the previous 30 years and then open the floor for discussion.

Debates about immigration have been around a long time but have heated up in the past ten years.

Some stress that America is a nation of immigrants. They point to the hard work of immigrants in farming and building and the immigrants’ contributions in science and technology. Protect the youths who grew up here (DACA), they urge, and keep the doors of opportunity open for newcomers!

Others warn that millions of people want to move here because of troubles in their countries. We cannot accept everyone who wants to come to the USA. Immigration should be limited to those who will not be a burden on our schools, hospitals, and social services. Also, we should not let immigrants take jobs away from Americans, especially during a pandemic and recession.

What do you think? What lessons do you draw from our history of immigration, and what should our leaders do about the many people who want to come here?
