Homecoming and informal learning

It is always nice to be home…I’ve been thinking about my experience in Nashville and the ways it can shape my instruction.  That sounds crazy perhaps but I experienced so much – often through informal learning.  Libraries are integral to informal learning – and my experience at the library and museums told me so much.  In addition the spoken word – visiting places such as the Opry and Loveless allows me to hear people discuss history, what/who shaped them as people, musicians, and there is so much that can be harnessed for formal learning – ways we can take these traditions and inform our students.

It was a wonderful, transformational week.
