Join us this Friday February 22 at 3:00 p.m. EST when we talk to author, humorist, musician, poet, theater director and academic rogue Diana Senechal.

Diana’s award winning book Republic of Noise: The Loss of Solitude in Schools and Culture challenges modern trends toward group work without individual reflection and one-size-fits-all learning outcomes. Sounds good, right? Except, if most teachers are honest with themselves [this writer included], we may just find she’s challenging most of us in education to be different – and a hell of a lot better – which can only be done with the courage to dismiss today’s gurus and think for ourselves.

As a humorist, Diana’s work is caustic and hilarious. As an editor, I read her stories as prophetic science fiction. It didn’t surprise me when on one occasion she wrote a story for The Cronk the same week an identical real-life event jumped out of the headlines.

I’m ready to be humbled, entertained, challenged and charmed by Dr. Senechal. Tune in to join the conversation and the solitary revolution.
