Stethoscope [Gently] Presses You to Help ’em Publish

Wesleyan’s Stethoscope Press has brought you entirely student-published literature, artwork, and appropriate Wesleying post images for more than a year and a half now. Piers Gelly ’13 hopes you’ll give back:

Stethoscope is doing a fundraiser to pull together some last minute funds! Our books are mostly written and about to go to print, but we’re a few dollars short.

We’ll also be doing a bake/d sale at Zonker Harris Day.

With a description this succinct, what’s not to love? …the description, you say? Ugh, rude. Here’s a little more, from the Indiegogo site:

Each year, we select several writers who work one-on-one with an editor to produce a book of original work. This year, we’re printing five books: a novella, a collection of poems, two collections of short stories, and a book of essays. […]

Please consider donating to Stethoscope! Any amount, however small, means a lot. It costs $4.40 to print one copy of any one book, so by donating just $10, you’ll be funding two whole books. For $22, you’ll be supporting one copy each of all five books.

We are offering some great rewards for donations. Take a look!

Show your support to Stethoscope by next Monday, Aprill 22, if you’d like to help out.

The Moral Path: Five Steps Towards (real) Educational Equity in Connecticut

From Andy Ribner ’13:

Jacob Werblow, Ph.D., began his professional career as a 6th grade teacher of some of the most beautiful children enrolled in one of the largest, most segregated public schools in Los Angeles. Since then, he has been committed to social justice through working with youth from urban schools. He is a licensed teacher and administrator, and earned his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon in 2007. Inspired by the work of Dr. Barbara Clark, who studied aesthetic education at Harvard University, Jacob is deeply involved in teaching courses that use the arts to engage students in local middle schools.

The emphasis of Jacob’s research focuses on school equity and effectiveness, student success, and curriculum based measurement.

Jacob is an advisor to the CT Center for Nonviolence, a board member of CT NAME (National Association of Multicultural Educators), and a member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). He rides his bicycle to work.
