Bringing Back the Chestnut – the Holidays on “With Good Reason”

Bringing Back the Chestnut – the Holidays on “With Good Reason”

Most of the chestnuts roasting on open fires this winter are from Europe or Asia, not America. In the early 1900s, American chestnut trees from Maine to Georgia were largely wiped out by blight. Heather Griscom (James Madison University) is helping to restore American chestnut trees and joins us for a sampling of holiday chestnut treats. Plus: What’s Christmas without a little organ music? With Good Reason producer Kelley Libby visits one of the oldest working organs in America and brings us a private recital by Tom Marshall (William and Mary).

Later in the show: Whether it’s a traditional hymn or a holiday song from our childhood, many people say Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without the music that marks this season. The sense of joy, comfort, or spiritual uplift comes in all kinds of music at this time of year. From a Charlie Brown Christmas to Donny Hathaway and carols from the 15th century, Inman Majors (James Madison University), Hermine Pinson (College of William and Mary), and Rob Vaughan (Virginia Foundation for the Humanities) share their favorite holiday music and memories.

“With Good Reason” is available as both an hour and half hour show. For more information, click HERE.

The Future of Higher Education – This week on “With Good Reason”

In May of 2012, Harvard and MIT announced a partnership to provide free courses to anyone, anywhere, sparking an intense debate about the future of a bricks and mortar education. With Good Reason shares highlights from University of Mary Washington’s Open and Digital Learning Resources Conference, sponsored by the State Council for Higher Education, including a panel moderated by Jeffrey McClurken (University of Mary Washington) where experts weighed in on the future of higher education.

AND:  Gardner Campbell (Virginia Commonwealth University) argues that the pursuit of wisdom should be the teaching aim in all higher education. Colleen Taylor (Virginia State University, John Tyler Community College) is seeing improvements among her chemistry students after adopting the so-called “flipped classroom,” where students watch her recorded lectures online and reserve classroom time for working on problems together in groups.

PLUS:  We’ll talk with author Ron Berler, who spent a year inside an elementary school deemed “failing” by No Child Left Behind. His experience is chronicled in his book Raising the Curve: A Year Inside One of America’s 45,000 Failing Public Schools.

“With Good Reason” is available as both an hour and half hour show. For more information, click HERE.
