Part 1: Researching My House
I'm obsessed with my 99-year-old house. So I made a 27-minute audio piece exploring my relationship to it. That's it.
Music you hear in this segment, all estimated to be from 1916 (the year the house was built):
- William Thomas, “Rose of No Man’s Land”
- Bresnen, “You’re a Dangerous Girl”
- Don Richardson, “Arkansas Traveler”
- Imperial Quartet of Chicago, “Perfect Day"
- Paul Reimers, “Memories”
- George Ballard, “There’s a Long Long Trail”
Links to other stuff is in the transcript.
Part 2: Jody Shipka's Response
In hopes that someone could tell me what my piece in Part 1 has to do with pedagogy, I turned to two smart friends who are interested in the past.
First, there's Jody Shipka, who teaches at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, tweets at @remediatethis, and is currently working on a project called "Inhabiting Dorothy." You can find out more about this and other projects at remediatethis.com.
Part 3: Jen Michaels' Response
She mentions the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives a lot, which you know about, right?
