Document A Pedagogy of the Distracted, a Rhetoric of Agendas: Helping Students Get into Writing in spite of--or by Working with--Distractions Document 2006-09-02 2006-09-02 2006-09-02
  Students can be helped to focus on their writing by encouraging them: to write and keep writing without erasing; to use writing about distraction as a way into writing; to view writing as a transgressive act; to consider the agendas leading to the existence of the classroom community and to the writing they do for the course; and to develop and use their own agendas as a way into writing. I model these approaches in the composition of this text and in my thoughts about how to integrate within the composition course my agendas to help students become both: (1) better writers and readers and (2) leaders who develop leaders, who see their individual growth as dependent upon the growth of the others in their communities.
Document Written on being asked to help a group study for Linguistics 420 Document 2005-06-30 2008-03-05 2005-06-30
  This summer I'm taking a linguistics class taught by the chair of the department. It is not an easy class. I'm learning a lot. A group asked me to help them out this weekend. On first being asked, I thought I couldn't help, it is just a matter of taking the time to read... A while later, since I'm planning to be a teacher of some kind, I said I'd meet with them. After thinking about it rather too much last night, I decided on what I've written about below.
Link Learning Org List remote url Link 2005-01-10 2007-06-28
  "George":http://georgekao.com/ wrote such a good description of the group that I'm taking the liberty of copying it here. If you want to be added, ask me, and I'll ask George. My original intention was that each person would start their own group for their own group of friends. But postings have been so few (none between June 2004 and January 10, 2005) we could use more members in ours. <blockquote> THE IDEA: Be amongst friends (and friends of friends) who are actively learning to live a life true to ourselves our callings in this world. We're not concerned about &ldquo;perfection&rdquo; but rather, about learning, growing, doing what we can to fulfill our highest visions for ourselves and for our world. And, our individual visions won't be exactly the same... the benefit of diversity is to learn from one another! Wouldn't it be cool if such knowledge were archived... and weren't so overwhelming? THE IDEA, APPLIED: Send us an update once every 3 months (no more) about what you're learning working on in the journey to live true to yourself and your calling in the world. LearningOrg will only accept 1 message per member every 3 months. If you want to respond to someone else's message, please put your reply within your own LearningOrg update, or respond to them privately. To keep the quality of the content high, this is an invitation-only group. I'll make sure you get no more than 1 LearningOrg message per day. LearningOrg was inspired by Colin Leath's idea of a place to &ldquo;share the most important things you have learned; challenge yourself with queries. What are your dreams for yourself? For society?&rdquo; His original idea can be found "here":http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FriendsOfColin/message/1. </blockquote>

Document Colin's quarterly update #2: Return to civilization? Document 2003-12-09 2008-03-05 2003-12-09

Document Colin's current philosophical framework (anarcho / neo primitivism, with an eye out for the integral), and its development Document 2003-09-20 2008-03-06 2003-09-20
  I've been influenced by John Zerzan, Derrick Jensen, Tom Elpel, Tom Brown, Dorothy Freed, and others writing about anarchoprimitivism/neoprimitive/simple ways of living. Here I share some thoughts and links to work that have encouraged me in my current path. I'm also aware of Ken Wilber, whose philosophy may suggest a different direction.
