Sunday morning discussion:
— each student will produce a (low-tech) film: reading Whitman work aloud in a particular place: THIS is where I found Whitman; THIS is what it means to read Whitman in a particular city (vs. in a classroom alone). This becomes part of our representation of place, as will be our record of field trips and local resources. May be mapped onto Google maps of the cities/regions.
–production of cinepoems as option for multimedia assignment; could also, e.g., compare interpretive readings from Mickle Street collection. YouTube examples of Whitman cinepoems available through Mickle Street also.
