From Sorrow to Joy

From the first bite of pączki on the days before Ash Wednesday, through Wielki Post and to the time when the last pussy willow branch is brandished on Dyngus Day, this is arguably the time when the most solemn and joyous events occur. With song and story, we’ll share the events of this season and explain their importance in the Polish community, the Catholic tradition, and American culture.

 Encore broadcasts:

April 15 at 8 p.m.

April 20 at 6 p.m. [Easter Sunday]

Listening to the Water

 

Listening to the Water

Jill Jedlicka is the Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper. She and her organization have done much of the legwork to help clean up the Buffalo River and other waterways around Western New York. The work done by Riverkeeper has been integral to the recovery of water all over the region. In her extended interview, Jill mentions "listening to the water."

After watching the extended interview with Jill Jedlicka, from Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, have a discussion with students about “listening to the water.”

1. What would Buffalo water say? Students should volunteer what they think our water might say. (ex. “please clean me,” “come swim with me,” “I remember when…,” etc.)
2. Talk about the different uses for our water (ex. For drinking, energy, transportation, recreation, etc.)
3. As a class, have students work together to create a large mural incorporating all the ways that we use Buffalo’s water.
