TL COurse

Posted By: Joseph Polizzi on August 4, 2004

Sounds like an interesting and creative course. In designing a course, I would consider using some elements of film as a spring board for discussion and learning. Some films, as whimsical and magical as "Spirited Away" an animated film about a little girl finding her way, as well as films on the humanities can be rich ways to inspire and create. Also, if you can find it, there is an excellent book by Corita Kent and Jan Steward called Learning by Heart: Teaching to Free the Creative Spirit, which is an excellent source book for creative ways of looking at the world.
Hope this helps.
