  • Field Study #1 Presentation

    1. 1. The Untold Stories
    2. 2. 3 stories on the path to one proposal
    3. 3. Story #1 On a road to nowhere
    4. 4. Helen Keller • “ Once I knew only darkness and stillness. My life was without past or future. But a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.”
    5. 5. Learning Statements Group #1 • People have an inherent need to communicate, to have a “voice”, and to share their stories • The forms of communication vary from person to person, and era to era • Historic forms of communicating include art (drawings, statues, paintings), written word (letters, journals, poetry) and spoken word (legends, plays, family history, song) • Recently developed forms include, texting, emailing, social networks sites (facebook/twitter), video (youtube), podcasting, blogging, etc.
    6. 6. Story #2 The Heart of Darkness
    7. 7. Chimamanda Adichie The danger of the “single” story, the power of the story teller, and the necessity of sharing the multitude of overlapping stories to understand our lives, our culture, and each other.
    8. 8. Learning Statements group 2 • “single stories” over simplify a confusing complex world • these stereotypes are easily controlled by the storyteller • the storyteller is often an “outsider” looking in • I have far too many “single stories” • “Africa” and Autism have a lot in common • I cannot understand, relate to, or effectively teach a student with autism if I feel pity for them
    9. 9. Story #3 The Ghosts
    10. 10. Amanda Baggs • A new “voice” sharing a new story about autism, communication, and the trap that is the “single” story.
    11. 11. Learning Statements Group #3 • My understandings of language, words, and communication are not the only understandings of these things • The educational systems attempts to communicate with cognitively disabled students revolves around teaching them our language • Without mastery of our language, students are left without a “voice”, limiting their power, value, relationships, motivation, and joy • As the teacher, and the “non-disabled” person, perhaps I should spend more time learning student languages
    12. 12. Learning to Spoke again The Troubles and Joys of Exploring New Forms of Communication
    13. 13. Field Study Plan • Use digital images and media to have students with special needs share their stories and perspective • Build a class wiki to store favorite photos and start conversations between students, teachers, and parents • Bring in a media artist to help with photography and story telling • Look, listen, reflect, discuss, look, listen, reflect, discuss (repeat until the end of time) • Attempt to interpret media, find hidden voices, build connections and foster communication
