THE BLUE LIGHT show: A Long Way Gone Discussion November 1, 2011Posted by willmeister in : CORE, Education Unit, MP3s, Portfolio , comments closed
This mp3 episode of the Blue Light Show is devoted to A Long Way Gone. Three CORE students discuss ideas relevant to paper #2.
Is the book more about war (darkness) or enlightenment? Why do the boys join the army? How does enlightenment occur, and what are the responsibilities of the enlightened? Can family be replaced? Why is music so prominent in the text–How does it become a metaphor?
Ali McLaughlin, John Moldenhauer, and Philip Feldwisch, as well as moderator William Milhans provide serious talk about a thought-provoking text.
