We were planning a "Welcome Back" episode on Teachers Teaching Teachers, something about how to launch connected learning with Youth Voices in our classrooms and how to be more planful about connecting our curriculum. #connectedlearning.
How do we do that after Michael Brown's killing and the Ferguson protests? More than ever we need those days, even weeks of trust-building with our students, yet we also can't pretend that Ferguson isn't happening.
Start with your own questions, then deepen your inquiry into Michael Brown's shooting, and the protests and confrontations in Ferguson by choosing from these articles, songs, interviews, photographs, blog posts, podcasts, reviews, videos, reports and surveys.
For this episode of TTT, Youth Voices teachers Chris Sloan, Paul Allison, Jo Paraiso, and Alicia Lobaco talk about how we are going to be launch a connected learning curriculum this year on Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net and how we are talking about and learning from Michael Brown's shooting, the protests, and the confrontatons in Ferguson. In addition we were also joined by Dr. Marcia Chatelain, who has been organizing #FergusonSyllabus on Twitter. On LinkedIn, Marcia writes:
I am first and foremost an educator. I have been teaching high school and college students since 2003. My career goals include publishing on the experiences of women and girls in the United States, African-American women's leadership and the relationship between food and society.
Dr. Chatelin is also a Ford Foundation Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow and she is the recipient of a 2012-2013 Ford Foundation Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship to work on her second book on food and civil rights. She is also Assistant Professor in History
#FergusonSyllabus is a great way to connect with others who are thinking about when and how to bring the Michael Brown shooting into the curriculum.
One of the take-aways from this episode of TTT was to be reminded of the power of http://youthvoices.net for our students. It's important to see and hear the views of students from different communities. The students in Chris Sloan's classes in Salt Lake City and the students in Jo Paraiso's classes in Oakland and my students in the Bronx are relatively homogeneous, and they can learn a lot from talking with students outside of their immediate school communities, especially on issues of race.

As an experiment, I've created an iTunes enhanced AAC version of the plain old Live From the Formosa Tea House, Session Five, that contains chapter markers, images and links to websites we mention. Here's what it looks like:
Because of the AAC encoding, and the embedded images and links, this is a much larger file than the regular MP3 version (32MB vs. 12MB). But it also sounds a lot better. Feedback welcome on whether this is worth it.
We recorded Live From the Formosa Tea House: Session Five this afternoon over lunch.
The focus of this episode was on Zap Your PRAM 3, the next incarnation of the Zap Your PRAM conference we organized in the fall of 2003. Zap3 is running February 16 to 19, 2006 in Cavendish, PEI; details forthcoming shortly on the new Zap3site.
There is, alas, an annoying bit of electrical interference that runs throughout the episode -- it's most noticeable at the beginning. I tried various methods for filtering it out, but they all made Dan, Steven and I sound like drunken fish. Here's a rundown of what you'll hear:
Stay tuned for more Live From the Formosa Tea House; in the meantime I'm just claiming the podcast feed by sticking this link in: My Odeo Channel. Go on about your business.
Like all other things web, it's deceptively hard to come up with realistic numbers for "readership" or "listenership." Web requests can come from too many places, in too many guises, to each be dependably tied to a real person.
That said, we can get a vague idea of the "listenership" of Live From the Formosa Tea House by looking at the number of times the MP3 audio files have been downloaded. This doesn't mean they've been listened to, of course, but it's better than nothing.
So here are the episode statistics, covering downloads from September 27, 2004 to the present:
We recorded in the coveted back room of the Formosa, with a very simple technical setup. We all sat around Dan James' APEX435 microphone, which ran into Steven Garrity's Behringer Eurotrack UB802 mixer. We took the output of the mixer and plugged it into my iMic, which was plugged into a USB port on my laptop. I did the recording in Sound Studio, saved as an AIFF file, then imported the file into iTunes and converted to an MP3 (24 kbps mono, VBR medium quality).
This episode runs one and a half hours. It didn't feel "too long" when we were recording it, so we've decided to release it completely unedited to maintain the "three guys having lunch" feel. It may feel too long to listen to. Things we discuss:
You can subscribe to the Live from the Formosa Tea House RSS feed if you want to become a regular listener. We're also in the iTunes 4.9 podcast directory -- just search for Formosa.
here's an excerpt from Ivy Wigmore's BUZZ review of the Master' Wife.
"This was the first time I?ve seen Roy Johnstone act but I hope it?s not the last. He was mercurial, infusing each of several characters with an authentic and droll flavour, often simultaneously playing the fiddle. In a memorable sequence, Johnstone played a pair of dueling musicians?one a classical violinist and the other a fiddler?assisted by Mullen, who nimbly dogged his heels as he ducked, dodged and veered to change the cap on his head as a visual aid to which character was speaking."
As part of the Summerside cultural festivities Roy will be giving an illustrated talk on Irish fiddling at part of the Chautauqua re-creations.
Join Roy, the Homestead players and the Wallpaper singers for an engaging and poignant portrait of the Master's Wife, by Sir Andrew MacPhail. Shows are in the community hall at Orwell historic village.
Roy performs for a variety of private parties, weddings, wakes, anniversaries, birthdays and funerals.
Dr Edward MacDonald will be giving a talk on Island history illustrated with vignettes from the Master's Wife at Province house.
