Using CCR's new anthology, Taking Action, Adam Davis presented twice at the Fox Cities Book Festival in Appleton, Wisconsin. The first session--a reading from Taking Action and a presentation introducing the practice of civic reflection--took place at Lawrence University on April 11, 2012. The second session, at the Appleton Public Library on April 12, 2012, engaged community members in a discussion (revolving around Anna Swir's poem, "The Same Inside") about what it means for Appleton to participate in the Compassionate Cities initiative.Edit Back to News & Events
What People Are Saying
CCR provided an important reflection session that bridged community experiences with the pedagogical process. Through the lens of the short story, teachers were able to see the process of educating through a new lens and that set the stage for an introduction to various community-based pedagogical strategies."
