A Sound Curriculum of Resonances
Sound Curriculum: Sonic Studies in Educational Theory, Method, & Practiceends, well almost, with Walter Gershon asking, “When was the last time you just sat and listened?” Had this question been posed at the opening of the text, I would not have known what to do with it. I am astounded how much I rely on sound; how little I know of how I live with it, experience it, understand it, understand with it. Reading, hearing and listening to this text was a journey in studenting—a term Gershon creates to make the work of students parallel to the engagements of teaching. Pondering Gershon’s question, at the end of a text of chapters layered like tracks in a sound file, resonated.
