"Ain't No Reason"
I love Berkeley....the old and the new!!
These are always a little sad to me when I can't recognize one of the old buildings.
DAMN YOU IMPERMANENCE !,..okay, not really.
Cool as always, NJ.
Thanks much, y'all. Blanche, as it happens, the building on the right corner is the same one that was standing in the original photo. And the campanile (clock tower) in the distance is still standing, but the view of it from this angle in the city is now obscurred by trees.
Which makes me realize that the date on the photo is wrong. The campanile was finished in 1914, so the photo had to be taken sometime after that. Ooooh, I love being a history detective!
My teaching partner and I will be teaching World Studies this year (I'm the English half, he's the History half). We're starting out with a project on how to think like historians so we'll use primary docs and artifacts to create profiles much the way they do on crime dramas. You wouldn't believe how popular those crime shows are with students. The idea will be to create profiles of regions, cultures, events, etc. using nothing but what they can piece together using artifacts as a pretext for exploring the "big ideas" (exploration, trade, empires, etc.)
I'm meeting with my partner tomorrow to discuss the basic framework of the course. I've always taught literacy using history to drive the content so teaching Humanities has been a great synthesis of all my interests.
