On Friday, October 21, 2011, sixty students, five teachers and I went to Manhattan via the Staten Island Ferry and took a walk along the East River to the Brooklyn Bridge, crossed it and came back to Manhattan and then some of us made our way to Zuccotti Park and then down Wall Street where we met up with the whole group at South Street Seaport, before walking back to the ferry. Along the way there was a lot of talk among students and teachers, noticings, and much photography. This is the third learning walk I have taken this year with teachers and students in Manhattan. During the next few weeks I will be gathering impressions from both groups about the learning that is occurring and will post what I learn here, along with images and other products that students composed.
