Today’s host, Gale Seiler, shared the voices of the Des Moines teachers who started RunDSM (Emily Lang and Kristopher Rollins) and three of their students (Elhondra Brazzle, Jalesha Johnson, and James Reasby). RunDSM uses pedagogy rooted in hip hop to expand traditional views of literacy. They spoke recently to future teachers at ISU. Excerpts of a talk by Caroline Isaacs, Program Director of the American Friends Service Committee in Arizona, were also aired. The title of her talk was: “Who profits from immigrant detention and mass incarceration?" And we heard holiday music performed by Kathleen Rodde from the Music Department at ISU.
