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.
