Interview with Lorna Wanosts’a7 Williams and Reuven Feuerstein in Shoresh Public


Production material centres around a joint interview conducted with Lorna Wanosts’a7 Williams and Reuven Feuerstein in Shoresh, Isreal. In tape 1, Wanosts’a7 and Feuerstein discuss how she first came to learn of his work while teaching at Ts̓zil Community School; Feuerstein’s conceptualizations of cultural difference and cultural deprivation; the need for respect of cultural differences without devaluing other groups; and Feuerstein’s idea of the forces of belonging. In tape 2, Wanosts’a7 and Feuerstein discuss Wanosts’a7’s experience first coming to Israel for Feuerstein’s international summer workshop; Instrumental Enrichment (FIE); more on cultural difference and cultural deprivation; mediated learning experience and cognitive testing; and the importance of emotional engagement in education, which includes a reflection by Feuerstein’s on his work with children of the Holocaust. In tape 3, Feuerstein discusses the BBC documentary “The Transformers: Out of the Wilderness” created about his work; and the responsibilities of parents in providing mediation, including the importance of Wanosts’a7’s work in re-empowering parents in that role. The filmed segments of the interview run from 12:29 on tape 1, and continue until 14:48 on tape 3. 12:30 on tape 3 to the end of the interview are silent. Additional sequences can be found proceeding and following the interview, including the Old City of Jerusalem; the Western Wall; Shoresh; and the Neve Carmel caravan site in Haifa.
