thinking about creating a community of learners
Thank you for the newsletter! Love the co-working idea and the review of hooks's Teaching Community. Also, the literature clock~ wonderful~
This was such a lovely meditation to read. I hope this week is fruitful for you and your writing partners!
I also loved the quote you shared from hooks’s Teaching to Transgress: “ Conversation is the central location of pedagogy for the democratic educator. Talking…is the practice both inside and outside academic settings that affirms to listeners that learning can take place in varied time frames…and that knowledge can be shared in diverse modes of speech”.
Love the office decorations and the co-working idea! I’ve tried it with a few friends for working/nighttime reading, and it’s one of my favorite parts of the day.
