Emily’s Meta-Primer #1: A is for Adornment 

“Why was fabulousness important? The world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles. That was why she had opened her store almost five years ago. Everyone who entered the little square white house with miniature Corinthian …

A is for Assessment 

Assessment is just a mean but not an end in both teaching and learning. Measure what you treasure! Whatever you value, content, critical thinking, creativity, personal interests, confidence, etc. Measure it intentionally! Assessment is designed to guide teacher decisions, not to grade. Assessment for learning! Differentiate for students. They deserve no less! Test the way …

A is for About time 

Manning… “taken form in the concreteness of time and space. This does not mean that time and space precede them events create time and space” (p. 7) Is time real? If not, how and why do we perceive it as "real"? According to Manning... An event is always singular, completely absorbed by its particular iteration. …

L is for Lie 

This post is a lie. It is actually not about lies at all. It’s not even directly linked to the letter “L.” It’s about Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, but since I had already used up my “A” post on “Alliteration” (so much regret…), I decided to attempt to be clever and hijack another letter for …

A is for Assignment 

Be careful what you ask for, because you are likely to get it. Isn't the assignment one of the central paradoxes of education? We can hardly think it without the assignment. Or what if the assignment were to attempt just this? Is it that the assignment is precisely not what it is? The stand in. …

A is for Art Therapy 

With the anxiety of a hectic semester I have been considering ways of managing stress. This brought me to thinking about the moments in the week where I am most relaxed. Usually those moments are when I am engaged in painting or coloring with my three year old. Even though my three year olds artistic …

A is for Alliteration 

Alliteration is always a little annoying. At least, to me. Personally. Poems piled with persistent puckers and sequenced, snaking sounds seem slightly silly. Still, schools sure emphasize educating every moldable mind about all about alliteration, assonance, and consonance—the constant, consistent virtues of vowels (and consonants) create certain values for every ear. Don’t get me wrong. …

A is for Authority 

"What avail is it to win prescribed amounts of information about geography and history, to win ability to read and write, if in the process the individual loses his own soul; loses his appreciation of things worth while, of the values to which these are relative; if he loses his desire to apply what he …

A is for Artist 

Is an artist an artist if/when s/he is not creating art? When s/he is not making art, should we define this period as stagnant? Or is it more a gestation period during which some embryo is forming internally, unseen-- for now? As a writer, I can write pages of horribly written prose or poetry that …

A is for A is for Education 

I’ve been finding it interesting how much time we’ve been spending on the logistics of Pressible at the beginning of class. People always seem to have questions, and answering someone’s question always seems to lead the discussion down the Wordpress rabbit hole, where one blogging issue reminds you of another coding issue which reminds you …

A is for Aesthetic Experience 

As we mentioned about aesthetic experience and its relation to artworks ... I've been doing some basic research beginning with the definition of aesthetics and finding references about aesthetic experience particularly in relation to John Dewey and Maxine Greene. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word “aesthetics” refers to a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature …

A is for Acting 

Hodges, William. Jacques and the Wounded Stag-‘As You Like It’, Act II, Scene I. 1790. Oil on Canvas. Yale Center for British Art, New Haven. In Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It, Jaques, the work’s seemingly jaded, melancholic figure, discusses the human condition’s inescapable roles—and the consequences thereof: All the world's a stage, And all …

A is for Anxiety 

A is for Anxiety Kierkegaard described anxiety as the dizziness of freedom, one that is overcome only through the leap between the moment of possibility and the action of our freedom. (Concept of Anxiety) In Lines, Ingold contrasts the presence of a line drawn freehand versus one created with the assistance of a ruler; “a …

A is for Afterthought 

1. To be added on after something has been finished. To be inconsequential. An afterthought occurs once the 'thinking' process has already ended. Or at least that's what the word has come to imply. 2. An essay I once wrote about the connection between Affrilachian poet Frank X. Walker and Guy Debord was dismissed as …

A is for Architecture 

In “Panopticism”, Foucault states that the purpose of the Panopticon was “to induce in the inmate a state of conscious and permanent visibility that assures the automatic functioning of power” (147). Bentham believed that power should be visible, but unverifiable. Through the Panopticon’s invisibility, there “is a guarantee of order” (147). The Panopticon allows for …

A is for Alive 

When I picked up this book about lines I thought could this really just be a whole entire book just about lines? How can you write a whole book about lines? Once I started reading I was intrigued by how Ingold defined what a line is, or can be. One part that I really liked …

A is for Notation 

Ingolt touched all too briefly on "the line" in avant-garde (postmodern) musical notation, stating in passing: The line, it seems, has been broken into fragments. If the straight line was an icon of modernity, then the fragmented line seems to be emerging as an equally powerful icon of postmodernity. This is anything but a reversion …

A is for Absorbent Ground 

Reading Tim Ingold's Lines, he discusses a type of line called the trace. An example of a trace, which is a lined formed by continuous movement is etching. Ingold says etching is a reductive trace because it removes material from the surface itself. This sentence lead my mind on a tangential quest to remember the …
