David Miletto: Italian Heritage, Family Stories, Chicago, Life, & Art, part 2 - 271
David Miletto is an artist. He was a child in the 50s, a teenager in the 60s, and in the late 60s- early 70s a college student. This is episode 271 of Teaching Learning Leading K12 which is part 2 of a multi-part series of interviews with David. We talk about being an Italian American, living in the era, Chicago, family stories and life in general. At the end of each episode, David describes a project he is working on and the help that he is seeking to make it come alive.
He has always been one of my favorite uncles. I think you will see why.
David has an incredible sense of humor. He also is an amazing cook who makes some of the most amazing dishes!
As a classroom teacher, my hope is that you will be able to use some of his comments about life in the past as a way of getting your students to create a better understanding of the importance of asking questions of those who were there: in this case, Chicagoland area in the 50s and 60s…(by the way the journey will also take us to Texas, Florida, maybe Las Vegas, and Italy...even Wisconsin). Too often textbooks leave out the emotions and the true feelings of the people of the era.
What do you think? I am sure that you could use this to engage your students in discussions about the past.
Primary sources of information provide us opportunities to learn without the bias of the editors. This multi-part series provides an awesome learning opportunity for the students in your classes.
Don't forget to go back and listen to part 1 - Episode 269.
Thanks for listening.
