During my 21 years of U.S. military service, I had many proud moments, but none compares to the day I became a patriot.
Designing Authentic Learning with Technology
While as a teacher in the 2009-10 era of high-stakes standardized testing, Stuart Ralston ’06 had a hunch. His classroom of sophomores at an urban high school in Minneapolis loved technology, especially the social and gaming aspects, as much as he did. How would they react to more tech in their learning?
As autumn sun glinted off Mount Adams to the west, Emily Washines MPA ’10 stood in the middle of a freshwater stream in the heart of a restored wetland, and smiled.
It was a rainy Tuesday in January 2007 and Korbett Mosesly ’11, MPA ’17 had a decision to make. In the morning, the youngest of his three sons, Andre, was having a kidney removed. That evening, he was scheduled to attend his first class at Evergreen-Tacoma.
In an office overlooking the heart of campus, Jennifer Drake and Chassity Holliman-Douglas joined The Evergreen Magazine staff for a conversation about campus climate, fresh leadership, and what it means to be a student-ready campus, both academically and culturally.
Ivan Espinosa ’17 speaks of his experience at Evergreen with such sincerity and gratitude, one can almost hear the smile in his voice. And it’s for good reason—he was accepted to New York University (NYU) with a full scholarship for graduate studies—based largely on the artistic work he created at Evergreen.
In the last issue, we noted that Paul Kramer passed away February 24, 2017 at age 54, but mistakenly truncated his name as Paul Kram. This has been fixed in the online version.
We also used the wrong photo of the 1967 signing of Evergreen’s founding documents by Governor Dan Evans. The photo shown here is the correct one, and has been updated in the online version.
We apologize for these errors.
