the sound of summer near the long island sound
On the last day we gathered, teachers reflected on their summer experience and provided an open reflection about their growth. Tania Nicole Williams shared this audio she recorded and offered us a beat to depart with. I kept the visuals limited simply to hear the voice in which she expresses her thoughts. Such sonic literacy, I'd argue, is undervalued by schools and the work we do wit youth. When it comes to communication, we should be open to allowing youth (and teachers) to share their thoughts in whatever artform works for them. I know this was the secret of the Brown School - the support of every individual's best. Imagine if we were open to such expression in our schools. CWP is my rhythmic reality.
