Week 1

October 16, 2020 “Introduction and thinking about were we are”

Some readings, art, music, and other resources. These are not required readings. They have been shared with us by our guests, or are things we have looked up after an interview for further information or just because we were curious.

We share these materials with you for interest and pleasure’s sake.

If you missed this week’s class you can listen to it here:

Today we heard a poem from Matthew Weigel. You can find more of Matthew’s poems here on twitter and instagram @spongepoet

As we mentioned and learned from David Ward, we are not the first, nor are we the only ones learning through radio. Here is an article about a school over the radio in 1937: http://www.openculture.com/2020/10/the-1937-experiment-in-distance-learning.html

Next week we will be talking about Indigenous stories. Thomas King is a very well known Indigenous storyteller. Here is an excerpt from his book, “The Truth about Stories”: https://houseofanansi.com/blogs/anansi/an-excerpt-from-the-truth-about-stories-by-thomas-king-1

If you need us to provide you with written copies of any of the above, let us know.
