Fundamentally, educating is the passing on of knowledge and values from one generation to the next to promote living wisely and well. As with all communication, however, the “how” of what we say impacts the “what.” A good educator is at root a good learner who models patient listening and skilled questioning. This year we will explore the “how” by focusing on the art of discussion, where teachers become fellow learners and, together with students, cultivate a life-long passion for truth and a life well lived.

Moana and Encanto are both beautifully animated movies with clever, catchy songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda. They are a delight to watch and listen to. They also provide an opportunity to think about a central concept in contemporary society: identity. Does Moana’s identity come from her society or from the voice inside her? Should Mirabel and her sisters define themselves by something other than the expectations of their family? More generally, how does a movie aimed at children use story, images, and music to convey ideas, and are these movies offering helpful ways to think about who I am? (Warning: we may talk about Bruno.)

Students should watch both movies prior to the class.
