Reflections from the First Annual Wild and Wonderful Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week at the Highlander Education and Research Center
Sodano-Goulet, Keara
Adult Learning, v20 n3-4 p30-34 Sum-Fall 2009
Highlander Education and Research Center's remarkable history is a source of inquiry and fascination for adult educators and community organizers alike. Scholars seeking to dissect Highlander's success have visited the Center to uncover the history, place, and methodology. Founded in 1932 by Myles Horton and Don West as an adult education center for social justice, Highlander continues to provide popular education for varying social justice movements. Its sustainability through social movement history is curious to many researchers, educators, and organizers because the survival of many popular education centers and even social movements is short. This article is a reflection on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes experienced at Highlander's first annual "Wild and Wonderful Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week" (W7). The reflection offers insight into strong educational practices for social justice. (Contains 3 figures.)
