Day 7 of GED in 5 months, Adulting, SD Promise, and the Zapotecs

Let’s help each other!

(Day 6Day 8)

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at: https://archive.org/details/StayedOnF…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

  1. “where are the grammatical errors in this passage?”

    One of the first lessons I taught during my internship was about hieroglyphics. I had students create their own language using Play-Doh lol
