remember how I said I really love this teaching thing?
I still really love this teaching thing.
We just started a visual literacy unit and so yesterday I had my kids analyze the New Yorker cover “Ferguson, Missouri” by Eric Drooker in pairs. And just. They were so good, I mean they had the most amazing things to say about it. I was walking around the classroom listening to their conversations and I was just totally enthralled. They care about things, guys. They were animated and energetic and passionate and I wanted to just cry I was so happy.
These kids—who come from all walks of life, by the way—give me faith in humanity every damn day. I feel so extraordinarily privileged to work with them and help bring them to their fullest potential.
I want to believe that your poststructuralist analysis of language is legit, but when you say things like “the signifier of the signifier”, “the scientificity of science”, and “ontophenomenological” all in the space of roughly three pages, I just can’t .
