Welcome

Today, we need to share as many stories as possible about people doing things out of love and looking at what connects us all as a community. Here at TWO IN THE WORLD we hope visitors can come for a minute or five to feel like they aren’t alone. Together, we will be exploring ways we can foster kindness, courage, hope and justice. Our explorers include a couple artists, a filmmaker, teacher, young historian, plus the occasional cat.

Some exciting news: Explorers Pamela Beere Briggs, Natalie McDonald, and teacher Judith Feuer-Walden, along with UCLA Film Professor Bill McDonald, have written THE SCHOOLHOUSE EXPERIMENT: Reimagining School at Home and in the Classroom. Woven throughout the true story of one family’s experience schooling at home are moving letters to readers from Judy about her public school classroom, as well as summaries of recent research about learning and thriving around the world. We hope our story and the tools we share in THE SCHOOLHOUSE EXPERIMENT will help parents, teachers, activists, and lifelong learners move forward in a calmer and healthier way, right now and post-pandemic. You can watch the book trailer below:

Visit our Shop to purchase the THE SCHOOLHOUSE EXPERIMENT or Ms. April’s Potted Plants, a 20-page illustrated book for readers ages 3-103 that can reassure, serve as a thank-you note for teachers who helped us grow, and maybe even inspire the planting of a beautiful potted plant.
