MP- N is for New Orleans 

As a native New Yorker, I question whether any other place on Earth rivals the aesthetic experience of this city. Paris maybe it's equal in terms of beauty, culture and romance, but lacks New York's ethnic diversity. The same may be said of London. Los Angeles lacks so very much-- history and soul and romance. …

Introducing Kiran’s(klp2140) Primer 

Although I felt sorry for not knowing who Kiran was, it was an interesting feeling to get to know Kiran first through her (hopefully you are female??) unique and mysterious name (trying to figure out who would be the one that would match this name among the faces I saw in class...), and then through …

From her observations on the use of language in posts such as “K is for K,” “P is for Precarious” and “A is for …

Costanza’s Primer 

Introduction by Jenny Coniff Costanza's primer is a wonderful, quirky exploration of the intersections and overlapping planes of neuroscience and art (E is for embodied cognition, D is for default mode). She weaves her interests in the workings of the mind into contemplative and fascinating musings on meaning, learning and being. Beginning with A is …

An Introduction for Jessica Lussier’s Primer 

I distinctively remember the first time I met Jessica Lussier; it was on the first day of our Education and the Aesthetic Experience class. I sat in the same table as her and immediately gravitated towards her quick wit, eclectic style, and warm personality. I was a nervous wreck; Spring 2014 marked my first semester …

An Introduction for Jenny’s Primer 

I picked out this thought-provoking quote from Jenny's closing primer, which she named after its author, because I believe it reflects one of the main aspects of her approach; questioning. The ability to question oneself is an extremely valuable one and, sadly, not frequently observed in teachers. As educators, we are typically required to assume …

Introduction to elee’s primer 

As an artist, educator, and student, Eunji Lee explores a variety of aesthetic and philosophical concepts in her strongly-visual primer. In posts ranging from Agnes Martin-inspired Google doodles to Janet Zweig's subway art to Joan Fontcubera's "selfie" exhibition, Lee uses specific works of art to illustrate questions of technology, perception, and collaboration. Other entries take …

Introduction to Athena’s Primer 

In her first post of the semester, T is for Thinking Reflective, Athena writes, “By reflecting we are having the experience of looking inwards which may make it more likely to ingrain what we are reflecting upon within us. When we take the time to reflect and bring that something to the deepest part of …

X is for x-ray or just “x”. 

X is for x-ray, or just “x”.  The human body is a strange and familiar entity.  One place where this is clearly visible is in an x-ray.  Last Christmas, I became very sick.  A chest x-ray caught Pneumonia in my left lung.  When my doctor showed me the x-ray, it was chilling to think that …

V is for vanity. 

V is for vanity.  Many humans are constantly in pursuit of physical perfection.  The media and advertising encourage “ideals” that, in many ways, are unattainable.  Real life isn’t photoshopped.  The lighting isn’t always “just right”, and most of us don’t have full teams of people assembled to work on our makeup and hair on a …

U is for understanding / unit plan. 

U is for understanding / unit plan.  Many of my final projects are unit plans.  The problem is, as a pre-service teacher it is extremely difficult for me to anticipate the learning styles of my students.  Ideally, I would first be able to get to know my students and tailor my lessons to fit their …

T is for tasks. 

T is for tasks.  I really hate cleaning my room.  While searching for a way to motivate myself to clean, I found an interesting post in one of my favorite blogs, zenhabits.  It reminded me of living artfully and with intention.  Even the most mundane activities, it seems, can be made relatively pleasurable.  In such …

Q is for questions. 

Q is for questions.  Unanswered questions are what keep us up late at night, tossing and turning.  What is it about mysteries that intrigue us so much?  Why do we have to know everything?  Whenever I have free time, I find myself looking up news about the missing Malaysian plane.  The thing is, I have …

N is for Naive Melody. 

N is for Naïve Melody.  If I were to assign one song as my “life anthem”, it would be Naïve Melody by the Talking Heads.  The lyrics remind me of the cyclical nature of life, and how things often come full circle.  The melody is optimistic and strangely sad.  It just seems like one of …

L is for life. 

L is for Life by Joe Brainard.  Joe Brainard is one of my favorite poets.  I appreciate the general style of his writing—simple, honest, and candid.  While I also appreciate poetic forms, Brainard’s poetry works alone and unstructured.  Life is one of my favorite of Brainard’s poems.  I find it especially poignant because Brainard died …

K is for Kiran. 

K is for Kiran.  Kiran is my name.  A name is something that we typically have no control over (unless, of course, we take action to legally change it).  This makes me wonder—does the meaning or connotation of a name alter the way we exist in the world?  Translated into Sanskrit, my name means ray …
