Here is the finished zine I made with my class during our Indie Media Workshop. I’m hoping some of the students will let me keep theirs.
I’m doing an independent media workshop with my students for the last few days of classes. We are making mini-zines. My zine is called girl beasts and consists of mashed up collages of sweet little girls with insect and animal parts.
I asked my students what they were doing. One of them is doing a guide to birding. Another is making a zine about trains. One girl said she was making her “guide to life”. It is all pictures of food. “My guide to life is eat as much as you can!” she explained.
I really, really enjoy this teaching thing.

Picked some more wild strawberries at the old Community Living building. There were so many- like tiny little jewels in the grass. A nice person stopped to warn me that they could be poisonous, but this girl knows better. I used them to make strawberry rhubarb jam. The rhubarb is from my garden and it has been so productive this year!
Someone anonymously sent me a Rudolf Steiner quote and I want to read more about Steiner and race. Does anyone have any suggested readings?
