We were hoping they would prefer one of the flavors (or liek both) and would then table in the cafeteria this week with samples of the flavored water. Instead of… read more

The other day in class we asked the students to reflect on their visit with someone who was a part of the Oberlin 2025 project. Since we weren’t able to be at class when the visitor came we wanted to hear how the students felt about it and what they… read more

My posts may end up being fairly out of order. Just a warning. This Wednesday I brought in a block of Grass-Fed Cow’s milk cheese to stir up a little conversation on what it is and why people buy it.  The goal was to convey to them the power of collective… read more

Fresh off a week of the amazing Hector, it was time for us to head back into the classroom.  Learning from Hector was an amazing experience that deserves its own entry, but I don’t think I could do it justice just yet.  I need more time to fully work out… read more
