Frolic on Franklin Street showcases the arts in Historic Downtown Clarksville


downtown-logoThe annual Frolic on Franklin Street was held in Historic Downtown Clarksville on Saturday September 18th. The Frolic on Franklin Street is a celebration of the arts, and more importantly artists.

Local artists both display and sell their work, including paintings, photography, jewelry, wood crafts, pottery and more. In addition, hands on demonstrations of pottery, wood working/turning, letterpress printing, and painting, are generally available offering parents and children alike the opportunity to watch and learn.

Editor’s Note: Clarksville Online was unable to attend many of the notable and worthy events happening this past weekend, due to several key staff members being down with the flu. So we owe a debt of gratitude to local artist and master photographer Alan Goldstein for his efforts in taking photos of this event for us! He is the owner of Photography by Alan.

Attention span can lead to success or failure in school


Attention span is the length of time a person can devote to an activity before their mind wanders.

Psychologists vary on what they believe the “average” attention span of a child may be. Some assert that the child’s age plus two minutes is the average. That means most kindergarteners (most are five years old) have a seven-minute attention span.

Others insist that the age of the child multiplied by three to five minutes is the average. These folks think that a six-year-old, or average first grader, can concentrate for 18 to 30 minutes. Few of these people have taught first grade.

Sales experts plan on a seven-minute attention span for an executive to listen to a sales presentation. Some college professors plan on a 20-minute attention span for their adult students.

Some researchers have determined that attention span is decreasing because most people watch seven- to eight-minute television shows that then switch to commercials. Others claim that our children have shorter attention spans depending on the amount of television or video games they play each day.

Whatever the attention span, the amount of learning is dependent on the ability to concentrate. «Read the rest of this article»
