Matt, can students attend in consecutive years, and if so, is there a limit to how many sessions?
Text your questions to chat for the presenters.
What aspects of Thoreau's life and legacy would each of the four of you like to investigate next?
Laura Walls: Can you talk about the painting of Katahdin on your wall?
From Matt Schlein to Mahmoud Hamed, All Panelists: 04:45 PMStudents can do Walden for up to 3 years. Most will do it for two years.
Matt: Do you think that Thoreau would have thrived as an educator at your school?
I do. I think I would be out of a job.
It has been a challenge. A huge contradiction at the heart of what we do. How do we translate a nature embedded experience into the virtual world.
All of you seem to be discussing in part the challenges of confronting uncertainty and vulnerability—whether it be in cultivating authenticity of self, addressing the injustices of the world or navigating the complex interdependencies of our world. What specific nuggets of wisdom do you draw from HDT in this regard?
Great, brilliant discussion, you all, to end this great weekend!
Two of Thoreau’s central motifs are those of the Wild and Higher Law which inform his two greatest essays. What do you see as the essential interrelation between the two?
Thank you for an excellent session. I look forward to seeing the film later this evening.
