The Long Line of 911

Welcome! Over the course of two weeks in late November 2012 I pieced together a document in an attempt to map my thoughts around curriculum, pedagogy, technology, and being - a final collection of thoughts for EDUC 911 Curriculum Studies Colloquium.  Two weeks of writing, three months of reading, thinking, pondering, rereading, reflecting, and ruminating. I wanted to take a number of ideas and hunches and weave them together into a cohesive unit that I hope is accessible. I think it was in Claudia Ruitenberg’s book* that she notes how a fellow philosopher of education scoffed when ask to reflect on her method: “I don’t know what I am going to write until I write it!” This was exactly my sentiment as I typed out my thoughts.

I gave a heading for each collection of thoughts, but they are more functional for me than integral to the whole document. My intent is for the headings to serve as signposts within my invented topology. Throughout I have tried to associate my thoughts and ideas with the readings that they are associated with under footnotes and at the end I have listed three lists of texts: (1) Books I have completed reading, (2) Books that I am in the process of reading, and (3) Books that I plan to spend December reading. (The references will be posted FIRST rather than at the end.)

Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing these thoughts here. Enjoy.
