The Art of Learning
Hi, This is a website about how to learn, what to learn, and why. We can trust teachers who subordinate their teaching to our learning, but like any art, we must find our own way in a pathless land. I'd like to make this a useful resource for many kinds of users, but, as you will see, I'm just starting out. I'm interested in your responses and ideas--my email link is at the bottom of this page (click the copyright), and the Discussion Forum is to share your message with other visitors.
- Four items are available at this time:
- Art Galleries of work by Sudeshna Sengupta and Stephen DeGiulio
- An Annotated Bibliography on "The Way Things Are"--Here are some excellent and reliable sources on a number of themes. I'll be happy to learn of others, but have included only those I can vouch for myself.
- An Open Letter sent in protest to the New Mexico Council of Teachers of English about a brief review of a book by Marc Simmons entitled "The Last Conquistador: Juan de Oñate and the Settling of the Far Southwest," which was published in their Spring '99 newsletter (Vol. 26, No. 1). This is somewhat of a local New Mexico issue, but can serve as a good example of how suffocation is mistaken for education my many teachers.
- An article by noted humanist scholar Edward Said about public reaction to the war in Bosnia: "Treason of the Intellectuals."
