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 Brainstorms on Earthfair, and on A larger vision of what our group could be Document 2006-02-11 2006-02-12 2006-02-05
  This was a post to the San Diego Ishmael yahoo group. The most memorable thought in here may be, ". . . what is more important than the relationship then, than _any_ relationship, is the community in which it occurs." This relates to a comment I made in an earlier paper, "In this tradition, which is founded upon belief in the independence and self-reliance of the individual, it is individual success, not community or family visioning, planning, and development, that is the means of resolving the problems of life." How can we raise a community culture in the manner others attempt to raise themselves or their relationships? Currently, for many people, work and church may provide their "patterns for living" (Clyde Kluckhohn). Can we make our own? What are the needs a successful pattern for living must address?
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.
