Prose for the 21st Century: The Art & Science of the Written Word

Methodology

My teaching approach is learner centered and based off a new set of 3R's: relational, responsive, & relevant. This means that we co-create the learning environment together. We develop a deep understanding of one another as learners and we use that empathy and insight to build a world of wonder around writing. This is not a pedagogy but more of an anthrogogy, a belief that learning is a lifelong human act that defines not only what and how we think but our identity as well.

Background

I am creative type with a deep academic background. I was initially trained as an anthropologist (BA), then as an historian (MA & PhD), and finally as a designer (MFA). I have taught learners at every level from primary school to graduate school to the world of work for the last 20+ years and I plan to do so for the rest of my life! The philosophies with which I subscribe are Reggio, Waldorf, and Montessori.

Jim's resume

key characteristics
extreme learner
I blaze my own learning path & co-create with others new learning landscapes that are both spectacular and meaningful.

radical collaborator
I’m the best version of myself when working with others who are quite different than me.

cross pollinator
