Some leads/threads/possibilities for posting on Sunday...
Consider some possibilities for a (water-y!) field trip:
Mill Creek (see map, above, of BMC physiography, from the BMC Campus Heritage Preservation Initiative)
Pennypack Park and Environmental Center (named after the Lenape word for deep, slow moving water)
John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge @ Tinicum (established to protect the last 200 acres of freshwater tidal marsh in Pennsylvania; from Lenape word "tennicunk" meaning "island" or "along the edge of the island")
Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center, which tells the story of the Schuylkill River and the urban watershed; the Lenape called it Ganshohawanee, meaning "rushing and roaring waters," or "Manaiunk"; it was later given the Dutch name Schuylkill-- "hideout creek"? "hidden river?" referencing the river's (nearly hidden) confluence with the Delaware?
Why would we go on a field trip? What are we seeking to find/see/learn?
Also consider: what shall we do about the class scheduled for Wednesday before Thanksgiving? Since some of us will not be here, and several of us would prefer not to be...one thought--> you read all of the Terry Tempest Williams' book for that Monday's class, when we discuss it; then we have an on-line discussion on Tues-Wed-Sun, each of you re-directing the 1 1/2 hours of class time into writing about/responding to others' writing about the text...?
You are also of course welcome to explore the readings further, to play out something you/we didn't get to talk about fully in class...
