With Tian gone, I had to figure out some way to keep busy. Fortunately, BSP summers are always intense and provide a lot of fun projects to work on. I picked up a special one right away with one of our returning aspiring teachers, Alec. Together we wrote and performed a spoken word / hip hop performance around the subject of “META” for All School Meeting introduction. My character on stage was a hip-hopping toy named “Yo Yo!”
So pay attention to the ways that we teach you techniques
Through Blooms and Gardner
Fred Jones and Others
We model how to model like we was your mothers.
When creating a to-do list is your first task
And questioning our questions is doing what’s asked. (hunh?!)
And you know the history classes we taught in the past.
Or the summer’s yours to lose like water in your clenched hand
Because summer never will be what it should
Unless your meta makes it
Yo! Meta make your mind go…MMMMMM…
