One more little reading

Hello all....  In case anyone missed it, I'd like you to read the short chapter by Wendell Berry called "A Remarkable Man".  In hopes of provoking a deeper discussion, I'd like you to have a look at another short reading called "Control Societies" by Gilles Deleuze.  Put simply, these two essays show two very different perspectives on postmodern/antimodern thought.  Neither, of course, gives us any real answers, but they might be able to help us think a little more deeply about possible ways forward. 

Also, I'll need at least a handful of people (6 or 7) to volunteer to talk about their lesson plans the following week (June 2).  I want to give more people an opportunity to speak their mind and to share their experiences trying to accomplish critical goals in their classrooms. 

Have a great week and see you on Saturday.
