The Wall That Heals in South Dakota

With the help of volunteers from throughout South Dakota, SDPB brings The Wall That Heals to the I-90 Rest Area near Chamberlain, SD, August 10-13. The exhibit is in conjunction with Ken Burns’ and Lynn Novick’s epic documentary The Vietnam War, which premieres on SDPB September 17. The Wall That Heals is a halfscale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Like the original Memorial, The Wall That Heals is erected in a chevron-shape. As on The Wall, the names on  The Wall That Heals are listed by day of casualty. Beginning at the center/apex, the names start on the East Wall (right-hand side) working their way out to the end of that wing, picking up again at the far end of the West Wall (left-hand side) and working their way back in to the center/apex, joining the beginning and end of the conflict at the center. The exterior sides of the trailer that carries The Wall That Heals open

to become a mobile Education Center. Information cases display photos of service members whose names are found on The Wall, along with letters and memorabilia left at The Wall in D.C. The Museum also includes a map of Vietnam and a chronological overview of the conflict in Vietnam. The exhibits tell the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict, and are designed to put American experiences in Vietnam in a historical and cultural context. With the help of volunteers, The Wall That Heals in Chamberlain is open to the public 24-hours-aday from August 9 at 8pm through August 13 at 4pm. In addition, on August 9, volunteer escorts will accompany the trailer that carries The Wall That Heals via Old US Highway 16 from Mitchell to Chamberlain through Mt. Vernon, Plankinton, White Lake, Kimball, and Pukwana.

Wit, Not Witchcraft Screening Shakespeare in Brandon Valley

by Katy Beem High school English teacher Matt Christensen’s classroom, like Christensen himself, pushes convention. Reminiscent of a mandatory school uniform re-jiggered for flair and dress code-flouting, the white walls and taupe carpet of Christensen’s cement-block room at Brandon Valley High School recede behind artful embellishments and unexpected details. Student tables, reflective of Christensen’s communal learning culture, sport colorful, patterned tablecloths. Student art – splashes of vibrant reds, blues, and yellows – informally festoon the rectangular bulletin boards like bright graffiti on a dull Burlington Northern boxcar. Tiger paintings and figurines repeat throughout the room – homages to the Bengal tiger from Yann Martel’s adventure novel Life of Pi, which Christensen’s students read and deconstruct. A wire-mesh human form stands prominently beside the whiteboard, its palms lifted skyward – perhaps supplicating in the hopes that students will stuff more paper scraps into its hollows. Its name is ‘Island.’ “’Island’ is a highly significant, extended metaphor/asymptotically realistic, botanical discovery from Life of Pi,” explains Christensen. “It has tiny slips of white paper embedded with literary theory, terminology, and excerpts. ‘Island’ is a feat created by students.” If Christensen were to write a book on teaching philosophy, it could very well be titled Feats Created by Students – and it must be available as an e-Book. ‘Island,’ the student art, and a handful of forms on the teacher’s desk are the few places where paper survives in Christensen’s classroom. “I print maybe two things all year,” says Christensen. “And I don’t let the students print. We keep everything in a Google folder.” 4

Learn. Dream. Grow.

Charged with making Shakespeare (b. 1564) matter to Generation Z adolescents (b. circa 2000), Christensen eagerly harnesses technology to deliver the Bard and writing arts to teenagers whose lives outside of school are propelled by smart phones, social media and cloud computing. Since 2003, Christensen has taught English and coached football and basketball at Brandon Valley. Characteristic of his manifold pursuits, his YouTube channel streams football videos as well as Skyped interviews between his students and author Yann Martel. “Yann’s famous, but he’s just super nice,” says Christensen. “I don’t sit on camera – I put students on the camera with him.” This year, Christensen’s keen espousal of digital delivery earned him the distinction of South Dakota’s PBS Digital Innovator, a program through which PBS LearningMedia recognizes PreK-12 educators from throughout the U.S. who thoughtfully integrate tech into their classrooms. Christensen’s curriculum director, Marge Stoterau, encouraged him to apply and student Gage Hoffman assisted with background music, B-roll, and voiceovers for

Christensen’s entry video. “Gage is a super kid and a really nice guy,” says Christensen. “He kind of motivated me and helped me show myself as someone who cares about digital innovations and how they can be used to empower students.” The collaborative effort reflects Christensen’s pedagogical stance of knowledge-sharing in the digital realm. “It’s up to both student and teacher to embrace the useful and new – not just the new. Sometimes it’s new, shiny, and flashy, but it’s not useful. Students are definitely digital natives, but they still need guidance in what we’re trying to get done or what critical thinking avenues we’re trying to open up and expand upon with digital tools.” A devotee of the SAMR Model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition), Christensen says it’s essential to not merely replace paper with screens for reasons of ease or novelty, but to create worthwhile learning experiences. “We want to make it collaborative. When students get voice and choice, then they care more, do more, and are more valuable in college and in their careers.” The paperless proponent evokes an ironic

comparison: “We start at the trunk and go to the branches.” To make 500-year-old Shakespearean syntax resonate with students raised on emojis, Christensen moves from page to screen with videos and digital assignments. “Shakespeare is major in common core. There’s all kinds of stuff – racism, sexism, ageism, stuff that matters today. You extract that for them or you empower them to extract it for themselves. I use all the PBS Shakespeare Uncovered Othello videos – highly informative and compelling,” says Christensen. “Students engage and grasp more with them. They love to meet the actors. They appreciate the intriguing detective approach to the video narration.” Mutual accountability heightens the stakes. As Shakespeare’s plays are typically comprised of five acts, Christensen forms student “expert teams,” responsible for mastering and presenting the content

and form of a single act to their classmates. Students also shoulder the responsibility of prepping each other for tests. Christensen provides resources and benchmarks, but otherwise purposely pulls back. “When you use too many rubrics, you get all the same projects,” says Christensen. “Essentially, I say, help us understand the act really well. Translate major speeches for us. Help it be an experience. Engage us. Demonstrate you know this act well – not only the characters, but what happened. They do a really good job with that. Speaking student-to-student is huge. They wind up reading way more than they ever thought they would. They start saying, ‘oh yeah, I get this. That’s a compelling soliloquy. This is a powerful speech. What a couplet that is or what an epithet that is.’ It’s fun.” Christensen cites a former student’s project as a prime example of delivering Shakespeare in the digital age. Bailey Quanbeck, now a University of South Dakota English major, produced a Snapchat series of conversations between Desdemona, Emilia, Iago and Othello to both hilarious and academic results. Christensen understands not all students are future English majors. “I get two English majors out of 100 college-credit students,” says Christensen. “I always offer options. You want to write this essay and document it like an accountant, because that’s going to be your major? Good, do it. You can use that documentation, that lens, you can look at the accounting in the story.” To Christensen, assignments featuring

video productions and digital essays are electronic means to a greater end. “To get a future engineer to briefly care about Shakespeare in his life before his engineering courses makes him a more aware human, a more cultured and literate human being, perhaps with more empathy,” says Christensen. “You can’t force empathy into anybody, but you can give them experience that could lead them to that. Make it experiential and help them feel a little more.” In June, Christensen joined fellow tech-savvy educators from throughout the country at the PBS Digital Innovators Summit in San Antonio. “It was spectacular,” says Christensen. “Really essential and paradigm-shifting. Now our goal is to head back to our states and kind of spread it.” Christensen is also Brandon Valley High’s digital coach, tasked with demonstrating digital resources to his co-workers. Throughout the school year, he’ll also partner with Steven Rokusek, SDPB’s Education Specialist, to help South Dakota educators suss out best, personalized practices using the extensive curriculum and lesson-planning resources on PBS LearningMedia and SDPB.org/Learn. “It was a complete honor to go to the PBS Summit and meet all these other torch carriers,” says Christensen. “Many of them are the voices in their schools of caring to empower students not only in digital ways, but in other ways. There’s innovation that can happen and PBS can definitely be a part of that.” For more information, see SDPB.org/Learn and PBSLearningMedia.org. August 2017

Shaun Evans returns for a fourth season on Masterpiece: Endeavour as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear. Endeavour waits to hear the result of his Sergeant’s Exam, and self-medicates to numb his heartache over lost love, but whisky and Tännhauser will only get a man so far.

Presiding from the Ponderosas: Coolidge in the Black Hills

Suzanne Barta Julin, Peter Norbeck: Prairie Statesman by Gilbert Fite and Great White Fathers (about Gutzon Borglum and Mount Rushmore) by John Taliaferro.” KB: “There’s terrific storytelling in the book. How did you reconstruct scenes such as the car ride Governor William Bulow took with an ‘annoyed’ Coolidge through Pierre and their conversation about Prohibition laws in South Dakota?” ST: “Bulow, who loved to spin a good yarn, recounted the details of that conversation in a 1947 article he wrote for the Saturday Evening Post. The written recollections of notable people like him, along with those of everyday people and the reports filed by the gaggle of national and local reporters who followed Coolidge’s every move in the Black Hills, provided a deep well of stories and details to draw from. Without those sources, it would have been difficult to write the book, because Coolidge left little behind in the way of presidential papers, and he said very little to reporters while in South Dakota and delivered only a few speeches in the state. When Coolidge wrote his characteristically short autobiography, he mentioned the Black Hills only as the place where one of his dogs died.” KB: “I enjoy the different takes the Eastern press and the Rapid City Journal press have on the same event, i.e., the reassigning of Secret Service

by Katy Beem In the summer of 1927, President Calvin Coolidge and his wife Grace moved White House operations to the Black Hills. Accompanied by their dogs, aides, secret servicemen and East Coast press contingent, the couple’s working vacation helped put South Dakota, agricultural issues, and Native Americans in national headlines like never before. Seth Tupper, enterprise reporter for the Rapid City Journal, has written Calvin Coolidge in the Black Hills (The History Press, 2017), which not only chronicles Coolidge’s troutfishing and rodeo-going, but also the sturm und drang a Presidential visit conjures on local people and places. Katy Beem: “What spurred you as a writer to tell the story of Calvin Coolidge’s summer in the Black Hills?” Seth Tupper: “I was recruited to it. Greg Dumais, former acquisitions editor for The History Press, had been on the lookout for South Dakota book ideas. He discovered there had never been a book written about the Coolidge summer, and he began contacting potential writers. I jumped at the chance to write the book, because I knew enough about the Coolidge summer from my own recreational and work-related reading to know there was a story to tell and plenty of available material, including A Marvelous Hundred Square Miles: Black Hills Tourism, 1880-1941 by

man Jim Haley and the hailstorm that damaged the airmail planes. Was this difference in the way stories were reported between the Eastern press and the local press a noticeable phenomenon?” ST: “The difference between the writing of Easterners and the local press was revealing and oftentimes comical. They came at the assignment of covering the president’s vacation from different perspectives. Some of the Easterners seemed annoyed at having to spend three months in what they perceived as a backwater, while the local press was of course thrilled to have access to a president and to have the attention of the nation. Those differences in perspective were laid bare during some noteworthy events, like the hailstorm that happened early in the president’s visit. The local journalists, being accustomed to the violent weather of the Great Plains and also probably fearing that the volatile weather would reflect poorly on the region’s worthiness as a presidential vacation spot, covered the storm dismissively. Meanwhile, a reporter for the New York Times described the event in great detail and called it ‘a terrific hail storm of cyclonic proportions.’” To read this interview in its entirety, go to SDPB.org/Living. Tune in to In the Moment with Lori Walsh on SDPB Radio this month for an interview with Seth Tupper.

Here Comes the Sun Watching the Solar Eclipse in South Dakota

Around the last time a total solar eclipse passed over North America, McDonald’s was introducing the Happy Meal, folks in Japan were sliding Michael Jackson’s justreleased Off the Wall cassette into a $150 gadget called a Sony Walkman, and President Jimmy Carter was addressing an edgy nation on gas lines and the energy crisis. Also thirty-eight years ago, Frank Belinsky sojourned from White Bear Lake, MN to Winnipeg in February to view the eclipse in totality. “It was cold,” says Belinsky. “There was a lot of snow. It was a beautiful day.” A retired dentist who now lives in Rapid City, Belinsky will travel with fellow members of the Black Hills Astronomical Society (BHAS) to Alliance, Nebraska, to view the full solar eclipse occurring on August 21. This year’s total eclipse path, about 71 miles in diameter, begins in the U.S. at Portland, Oregon,

tracks through Casper, Wyoming and southeastern Nebraska, and exits the country in South Carolina. South Dakotans unwilling to travel will have to content themselves with a partial eclipse. Belinsky, who presents on eclipses and other astronomical phenomena for the BHAS at their observatory north of Rapid City and at the Journey Museum, gave SDPB tips for optimum solar eclipse watching in South Dakota.

Katy Beem: “What will South Dakota see on August 21?” Frank Belinsky: “In Rapid City, it’ll start around 10:27am and the whole duration of the partial eclipse will cover about 95.7% of the sun. There’ll be a little crescent of the sun showing. The duration will be two hours and 47 minutes. It’ll be a fairly complete partial eclipse, so even with 96% of the sun covered, you still need eye protection at all times. With 96% coverage, you might

notice some dimming, but if you were just going about your business and didn’t know there was an eclipse, you probably wouldn’t notice it. You might think there must be some clouds or something. Just a little bit of dimming, but not that much.” KB: “For watching, safety is number one. Can you give me the range of tips for viewing?” FB: “There are very good, perfectly safe eclipse glasses available. They’re cardboard with a cellulite lens material that blocks 99.999% of the radiation. You can make a pinhole camera – project it onto a piece of paper taped to cardboard. Make a hole about a millimeter – the larger the hole, the less distinct the edge of the sun gets. Then there are eye-protection solar filters made specifically for binoculars or telescopes. Welder’s glass works great, too – number 12 or 13. Use protection the entire time. Even with a partial eclipse, you can burn your retina.” KB: “Why do we still get so excited about eclipses?” FB: “I think because, especially the total eclipse, it gets really dark. You can actually see the shadow coming

across the ground toward you. It gets colder and animals stop making noises, birds stop singing. It’s just astronomers that start to make noise at that point.” KB: “Do you still get excited?” FB: “Yeah, especially during a total eclipse. But we’re worried about crowds. We’re going to Alliance, Nebraska, but of course a lot of people have the same thing in mind. So the BHAS has a special location that we’ve arranged for. There hasn’t

been a hotel room available for two years in Alliance or along the path.” KB: “Does it give you hope in humanity that people still get excited about eclipses?” FB: “Especially young people, if they can take part. Even the partial eclipse – really start to think about what is going on up there. Some people talk about how they want to photograph the total eclipse and there’s stuff online about things to keep in mind and whatnot. I don’t think I’m even going to bother. I think I’m just going to sit and look at it for two and a half minutes.” KB: “You want to be present to it. Why?” FB: “Since it’s only two and a half minutes, I don’t want to spend so much time screwing around with a camera. Look at the horizon and look at things like that because colors will change. You’ll see planets, too. Jupiter down to the lower left and Saturn. Stars will be visible. Mars, Venus and Regulus – the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion. You’ll be able to see the concept of the elliptic. You can experience it better just by watching it.”

Hanna Rosin, Alix Spiegel, and Lulu Miller host the spellbinding NPR podcast Invisibilia, which returns to SDPB Radio Sunday evenings this summer. Latin for “invisible things,” Invisibilia interweaves narrative storytelling with scientific research to explore invisible forces that control human behavior – ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions. In a recent New Yorker interview, host Rosin said that while Invisibilia isn’t a show about politics, its

examination of how people come to think and believe the way we do is highly topical and relevant. Rosin asked, “How are people literally looking at the same facts and seeing something wildly different, and are absolutely sure that they are correct?” So Invisibilia visited Eagles Nest Township in Minnesota, to meet two groups with differing realities: folks who believe the area’s black bears are friendly and another who believe they are ferocious. Listeners learn why both groups think they’re right.

Great Performances showcases operatic masterpieces this month. Eugene Onegin – Based on the classic Russian novel by Alexander Pushkin, Tchaikovsky’s lyric opera relates the skewed love story of naïve, bookish Tatiana (soprano Anna Netrebko) and the selfish, flirtatious title character (baritone Peter Mattei) who rejects Tatiana’s love. This Metropolitan Opera production boasts “an exceptional cast” and “taut, urgent playing from the excellent Met orchestra.” (New York Times) SDPB2: Sunday, Aug. 13, 2pm (1 MT)
