I was reading about this today, and it sounds like such an interesting curriculum for middle school and high school kids. Love that Steve Van Zandt is working to get something like this into a classroom to get kids engaged in school.



I remember when I was in high school, we had a pretty progressive English department (especially for a public school). In our Junior and Senior years, we could take quarterly or semester courses. They had offerings like Vonnegut (where the class had a yearly on-going correspondence with Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.), Literature of Peace and Protest, Adolescent Experience, Literature of Baseball, Creative Dramatics, Chaplin, Journalism, Shakespeare, and the like. These classes were so much more engaging than regular English classses. I wish they would have had this as an option!

Very cool. Steve is such a talented and creative guy. Nice to see this actually getting to go into schools. I hope it does well.
