'Let's not squander advances in education to the profit motive'

'Let's not squander advances in education to the profit motive' | Chalkface Rhetorics @JFK-I, FU Berlin | Scoop.it
2015 was quite a year for education policy. We witnessed the adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in which a stand-alone education goal was included. Together with the related targets and the UNESCO Framework for Action, aimed at ultimately turning the goals into action, it’s quite an achievement by the international education community.

Patch Adams meets Kenneth Burke: Order vs Perspective by Incongruity.

Patch Adams movie clips: http://j.mp/1uuZQn3 BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/uhjb7y Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION...
KINOWORDS's insight:

Case study example of our work on Kenneth Burke: educational hierarchy, order vs perspective by incongruity; the struggle over terms (treatment), agency over scene (Hollywood realism).

 

Also symbolic action - Robin Williams choosing a role that literally speaks his own inner demons, trying to reach constantiability with the story audience and the film audience beyond.
