Clayton State University debuts our new Water Front GUIDE in Atlanta, Oct. 17, 2008
Clayton State University brought Associate Producer Curt Smith and our new WATER FRONT GUIDE to Atlanta. Its true, Atlanta is not next to the Great Lakes but they have had their share of water privatization battles over the last few years, and we were thrilled that Clayton wanted to be the first university to integrate the GUIDE into two classes. Roderick Keith Linzie of the Sociology department was our host and his work focuses on social movements and social inequality. Curt Spoke in his two classes including, "Survey of Social Sciences & Contemporary Issue." Dr. Linzie used clips from The Water Channel (Maude Barlowe, The Truth Commission and the seven minute short) to frame the issue and next semester he plans to show the film. Look for an entry under "In the Classroom" to see how he used clips and the guide to fit into a 50 minute discussion class setting. Many Thanks to Dr. Linzie for bring Curt and "The Water Front" to your students!
