Too early to predict about Chcago yet, I am afraid, Alan. But in checking the dates I see the Bears would be playing the Chargers, if there is an NFL Season. And Soldier Field is an easy taxi ride away from the Hotel, it seems. My thesis was an examination of press boxes at sporting events, so you can tell where my interests lie. But cross your fingers or say a prayer or whatever you do, and we will both get there and get to meet. Looking at your interests, I see we share many things in common.

Oh my - the "to watch list" is a bit epic these days.

I'll ask my colleagues on the FullFrame Doc Festival selection committee. I don't know if there is such a thing, but "Iraq in Fragments" is a terrific "on the ground" documentary with three distinct sections, one each from the POV of the Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds. It's neither pro or con American involvement, but it does show the effect of the war on ordinary people. Sorry not to be more helpful.

Hey Alan,
Ryan suggested I contact you..I'm looking for a documentary that is Pro-American Gov't Pro Iraq War.

I'm trying to show students Two Perspectives I am showing From Freedom to Facism as a anti-gov't radical perspective. I need a counter perspective documentary.

Any thoughts.

Oh and I like your book, I just ordered myself a copy because I am very VERY pro film in the English classroom!

Hey Alan - it was - as always - great seeing you at NCTE!! If you want to post your presentation materials in the literature / film groups I will be sure to highlight the materials in a "week in review" - you can do a short synopsis here and link out to Alan's site if you dig..

Thank you much for the accidental plug at your session - that was very nice of you!

Hope and Andy had a great Turkey Day!

Hi Alan,
I teach English in North CArolina as well, Monroe to be exact. i have been teaching 10th graders for about 2 1/2 years and I still haven't gotten a handle on exactly what I want that curriculum to do- if that makes any sense. I would love to hear your ideas on how you have organized the curriculm and what works you teach or have taught in the past. Thanks so much I will share with you as well.

Hi Alan-
Thank you so much for the suggestions...I really like your concept of In self and out self. That is a great way to approach the project, and I will definitely add that element to the curriculum guide.

I am currently in the middle of the workshop, and the students are making some interesting diptych and triptych identity paintings. I will try to post some when the workshop is finished.

I can't believe you actually work with Wendy Ewald! I was a photo major during my undergrad, and she came to speak to our photo class about her work. I have followed her ever since. I even used a lot of her work on my Master's thesis, where I was looking at literacy and photography for high school photo curriculum. Needless to say, her work has been very influential on my practice.

What is your area of interest in Education, btw?
