Anancy at Miami Dade College

Geoffrey Philp

Last week Saturday, I had the pleasure of reading Grandpa Sydney's Anancy Stories to the children at the Reading Learning Center at the North Campus of Miami Dade College. The Reading Learning Center, which began under the direction of my former supervisor, Dr. Ken Boos, has grown from a little project of my department, College Prep., to the point where it is now being run by the Community Education Department.

Although this reading was much different from the past two readings at Florida International University and South Miami Heights Elementary (the children were much younger), it was good to be back on my old stomping grounds of the English Department. And setting up my PowerPoint was a breeze now that nearly all the 40+ classrooms (compared to the 5 we had three years ago) in the building now have full multimedia capabilities.

Give thanks, again, to Sherian Demetrius, the Reading Learning Center staff, and the children and parents who helped to make this a wonderful experience.
