Chapter 2.13 - West Side Remix

Open in playerListen on);
Two English teachers talk about writing, literature, media, and the classroom. We believe that every piece of writing has a purpose, every story is connected, and ultimately language is at the core of every human experience.

Episode details

In their first episode of the new year, Alicia and Sarah return to their love of musicals with a complete analysis of the new film version of West Side Story. They discuss star-crossed lovers, racism, the social justice system, and the power of language, all wrapped up in the classic lyrics of the late Stephen Sondheim. At the end of the discussion, they talk about the things they've been reading, watching, and analyzing outside of the classroom.
