July 22 – What’s Your IQ? History and Current Use of Standardized Testing We’ve all taken standardized tests. Most of us experienced regular testing during our K-12 years while college entrance assessments were generally required for those of us who wanted to pursue higher education. Testing is required before entering the military, and some employers require standardized testing for all applicants. What are standardized tests designed to measure? How do we know if they are reliable and valid? Has testing ever been used to advocate political or social agendas? What is “intelligence”? This talk traces the origins of standardized testing while examining how they are being used today. Specific types of tests are scrutinized with examples given that just might just help you improve your next evaluation! Presenter: Greg Jenks July 29 – Achieve Your Goals With Simple Switchwords! Switchwords are power words that can bypass your conscious mind and speak directly to your subconscious, where most of your decisions are made. Switchwords are as simple as “together” or “reach,” yet they can help you lose weight, break a bad habit, increase energy, deal with pain, promote sleep or even find those keys you set down somewhere. Used like a mantra, switchwords can “flip a switch” in behavior and beliefs, clearing blocks to success and activating your ability to achieve goals. Explore how they work, identify common switchwords, find your personal favorites, and explore a variety of techniques for using switchwords. Join us, and learn to talk to the part of your mind that’s making all the decisions, your subconscious. Presenter: Faye Bonini

To Bee or Not to Bee...a Beekeeper!

“Hamlet”: It Ain’t Necessarily So

Humans have been collecting honey from wild bees for over 10,000 years and have been domesticating bees since 1500 BC. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a traditional beehive in your backyard? Besides producing anywhere from 20 to 60 pounds of honey per year, beekeeping is an intellectually stimulating and enjoyable hobby that’s relatively easy to get going. If you’re a gardener, your plants will love having a prolific pollinator tending to your fruits and vegetables! This class gives you an overview of all the required steps to start and maintain your own hive while also reviewing the history of beekeeping and the important role that honeybees play in world food production.

In 1948 Laurence Olivier famously began his movie version of “Hamlet” by saying, “This is the story of a man who couldn’t make up his mind.” Several important Shakespeare scholars believe Olivier’s opinion is actually the opposite of what Shakespeare had intended. Hamlet, they believe, is meant to be seen as a character who actually decides quickly, but incorrectly, to avenge his father’s death. But if the play is not about indecision, what is it about? Join Shakespeare enthusiast Gary Baughn as we clear away the rubble of 400 years and look with new eyes upon an old yet important play. Please be sure that you have read or seen “Hamlet,” and bring a copy, along with an open mind, to class each day.

Chocolate From a Science and Engineering Perspective

The higher education community, consisting of public, private and technical colleges, has traditionally served as a key driver of both economic and social advancement in our state. However, the current status of higher education has been anything but stable. Institutions have been disrupted with recent demographic, fiscal and competition trends, which have contributed to an overall challenging educational environment. Going forward, these institutions need to reconfigure their strategies and staffing to thrive in this challenging environment.

This presentation focuses on how the quality of chocolate depends upon both chemical and physical properties. It is produced following strict processing standards and high-quality ingredients. The ingredients undergo significant chemical changes during the processing. We discuss the chemical changes that convert an astringent, bitter and bland cacao bean into a complex, rich and flavorful confection. Although chocolate is an ancient food, the full versatility and property development of chocolate has only recently resulted from industrial processing of chocolate. This processing is an excellent example of how a material’s properties can change depending on the processing conditions. With both the chemistry and the material properties dependent upon the processing of chocolate, we look forward to connecting these subjects for you.

Wisconsin Higher Education Trends and Discussion

While water has always played a geopolitical role, the way we view water, and in turn our environment, has always been in the realm of poets and writers. From Henry David Thoreau to Aldo Leopold to Rachel Carson, Annie Dillard and Terry Tempest Williams, the way we write water has influenced environmental scholarship and given rise to ecocriticism. Now that we are in the age of the Anthropocene, a term coined by Paul J. Crutzen in “The Geology of Mankind,” which refers to the geological epoch in which humans are the dominant influencers on the environment, how must the way we write water change? What is the role of nature writers and ecopoetics? How are contemporary writers and poets raising awareness in their works?

Frank Lloyd Wright’s first foray into affordable housing is frequently overlooked, just as the Elizabeth Murphy House (American System-Built Model A203) was forgotten until rediscovery in 2015. The well-preserved tiny home boasts fundamental Wright design concepts, but also reveals shortcuts and cover-ups – evidence of misunderstandings, overruns and angry buyers – and the markings of an experimental idea stuck on the launchpad that Wright regretted, would downplay, and later, correct. Using photographs, drawings and historic timelines, this presentation clarifies Wright’s decision to orphan the ASBH program and how his subsequent work and legacy would be launched by the experience.

French Château: More Than Just a Castle

Lake Michigan Fisheries Management

The term château includes architectural entities that are properly called palaces, mansions or vineyards, buildings as diverse as a medieval fortress, a Renaissance palace and a 19th-century country house. A château is a manor house or residence of the lord of the manor or a country house of nobility or gentry, with or without fortifications. The urban counterpart of château is palais (palace), which is applied only to grand houses in a city. Imagine you are a lord or lady as we travel back in time to visit the most famous French châteaux, built predominantly along the rivers in the Loire Valley, and famous urban palaces such as Versailles and Fontainebleau.

Researching and Preserving Your Family History

The Victorian Undertaker Steve Person, a retired funeral director, presents this program on many of the Victorian funeral and mourning customs. It was during the Victorian era that the ritual of death and public funerals began, complete with floral arrangements and a hearse for transportation of the deceased. The “undertaker” of the Victorian era was the forerunner of today’s funeral director. Many of the traditions that are observed in our funeral process today came to be from superstitions of the 1800s. Mortuary and embalming equipment and instruments from this era are also a part of the display that is shared during this presentation.

The 1634 Journey of Jean Nicolet to Wisconsin The history of the French explorer Jean Nicolet has for the last 150 years been marred by factual errors and errors of interpretation. Moreover, these errors have been wrapped in an equally pernicious (and inaccurate) mythology. Nicolet came to Wisconsin in 1634 not as an explorer attempting to find a passage to China as earlier histories have presented. Instead, he served as a diplomat for Samuel de Champlain, the commander of the colony of New France. The true story is more interesting and far more important to our understanding of early French history in North America.

FEATURED ON THE COVER

Pay It Forward You’ve enjoyed Osher programming – now help us make it even better.

Making a splash with watercolors! Leon Travanti, professor emeritus of the Art & Design program at UWM’s Peck School of the Arts, has spent the last five years as an instructor with Osher. He was an Osher member for three years before diving into teaching courses as well, and he’s made quite a splash with his watercolor painting course at Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum! According to Leon, “That venue is really great because [participants] can work in the gardens or in the buildings and do plants or architectural studies or whatever they are interested in. I just help them with their watercolor techniques or at least try to help.” With many friends already members, joining Osher was an easy decision for him and his wife to make – and one that he has never regretted. Together Leon and his wife have enjoyed a variety of classes. “You take courses that you may not have a chance to take [otherwise]…we are all older people and have similar interests. You have a lot of interesting dialogue, especially when you meet people with different backgrounds.” Leon and his wife have enjoyed Osher trips as well, with one to New York City noted as particularly enjoyable. “We spent three to four days and we were right in midManhattan. We walked [to places]; it was quite easy. We all dined together and talked about what we’d seen. Some of the best plays I’ve ever seen were during these trips…” One of Leon’s favorite parts of Osher travel is “making new friends. So many people discover [others] on the trip who have a similar interest. They learn something, and they are also making new friends. I think that’s part of the whole idea – just being active and thinking about what you’re doing next and what you want to learn next.” He has found that Osher provides him with the opportunity to “work on new things, new ideas, new directions, new friends, keeping active in the sense that you’re not only physically active but mentally active. It keeps you going.”

A tax-deductible gift ensures that the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UWM offers quality programs at an affordable price and provides every adult 50 and older with the opportunity to rediscover and re-engage in life through socially active learning for many years to come. To learn more about the ways in which you can give financial support, contact: Liza Longhini School of Continuing Education Director of Development 414-227-3252 lizal@uwm.edu For more information on charitable bequests in your estate planning, contact: Gretchen Miller, JD UWM Director of Gift Planning and Agreements 414-229-3067 plangift@uwm.edu uwm.edu/sce/give

In other words, dive into Osher…the water’s just right!
