The Integrated Learning Specialist Program, a project of the Alameda County Office of Education, prepares K-12 teachers, teaching artists, and administrators to effectively plan and deliver deep, meaningful, and engaging student learning across all subject areas through arts integration, performance-based assessments, and collaborative curriculum design. As an apprentice faculty member, I gave this presentation as the culmination of several months of artistic research exploring the transdisciplinary implications of stars.

  19. 19. Slow, cold start to universe suggested Idea provides alternative to Big Bang theory of cosmic origin The universe may have emerged not with a hot Big Bang but with a long, cold slog, a physicist proposes in a paper posted online January 21 at arXiv.org. Over the last half-century, most cosmologists have come to agree that all matter initially exploded from a single point. An instant later, the hot, dense universe ballooned dramatically in an event called inflation. A slower expansion then proceeded for billions of years. But the Big Bang model requires the universe to start from what physicists call a singularity, a point of infinite density at which physical laws break down. A theory that avoids a singularity without introducing other complications would fit better with quantum mechanics and general relativity, physicists’ best explanations of nature’s fundamental forces.
  20. 20. Create Gestures
  21. 21. Liz Lerman: Critical Response Statements of Meaning: Responders state what was meaningful, evocative, interesting, exciting, striking in the work they have just witnessed. Artist as Questioner: The artist asks questions about the work. After each question, the responders answer. Responders may express opinions if they are in direct response to the question asked and do not contain suggestions for changes. Neutral (or Curious) Questions: Responders ask neutral questions about the work. The artist responds. Questions are neutral when they do not have an opinion couched in them. For example, if you are discussing the lighting of a scene, “Why was it so dark?” is not a neutral question. “What ideas guided your choices about lighting?” is. Opinion Time: Responders state opinions, subject to permission from the artist. The usual form is “I have an opinion about ______, would you like to hear it?” The artist has the option to decline opinions for any reason.
  22. 22. Artist/Researcher Statement “Do I really deserve this? Should my name be on the same list as Einstein? It just seemed completely wrong. Over the years, I guess I’ve come to understand that the Nobel Prize is given for discovering something, not for being the smartest person around. So, while there are much smarter people around, we did something significant and I feel comfortable with it now.”
