Ken Goatman
P. David Pearson
02:54:57
My GOAT association with Ken is decidedly verbal: When it comes to Ken and reading theory, research, and practice, Ken is simply thE GOAT: GREATEST OF ALL TIME.
Chris Sclafani
02:54:59
Alan got me on that one :)
debrajacobson
02:55:00
Yes!
Paul.Boyd-Batstone@csulb.edu
02:55:01
Another GOAT metaphor is in sports: Greatest Of All Time
koshewa
02:55:06
Such wonderful presentations! Jerry your goats made me think of the goat being goaded, of the shade Ken’s brave pioneering provided for those of us, and of the literacy embedded in his life.
Maureen Morrissey
02:55:08
I'm so happy to be here from New York with you all

Hi everyone. Greetings from Bogotá, Colombia!
debrajacobson
02:55:26
so good to see everyone
Pamela Perkins
02:55:44
Ken was definitely a scapegoat for the behaviorist word-bound view of reading that destroys the possibility of comprehension - which exists and is prevalent here where I am teaching in the RMI. I’m persistent in getting students’ goats however.
debrajacobson
02:55:47
Everything is fantastic!! So well done!
Caryl Crowell
02:55:47
I love Jerry’s goats - all of them! Hi, everyone! Wish I could see you all in person.
Poonam Arya
02:55:48
Love the various stories everyone has shared :)
Virginia Pfannenstiel
02:56:01
I see goats dancing to this music...hopping, jumping, and skipping....celebrating the concepts shared!
P. David Pearson
02:56:03
GREATEST OF ALL TIME seems to be a consensus.
Peggy Albers
02:56:04
What a wonderful set of images. I see the tumbling goats as the scholars/friends working and tussling with each others’ ideas! WL, CELT, NCTE, LRA
Yvonne SiuRunyan

02:56:30
I am distracted by the fact that the music is popular with belly dancers, and I have danced to it often. All that time I spent in Turkey.
Yvonne SiuRunyan
02:56:48
OOOO-lala, Wendy.
Debra Goodman
02:56:56
This is Zemer Atik - Israeli, not Turkish. :)
Ruth J Sáez Vega

debrajacobson
02:57:01
good dancing music—I recommend it
Speaker | Brian Cambourne
02:57:07
In Australia the letters G.O.A.T have become n acronym for “ Greatest Of All Time” Our porting stars are being invited on the equivalent go a hall of fame called the greatest of all time. Ken to me is deserving of the same acronym.
Debra Goodman
02:57:34
It’s a fun circle dance.
Peggy Albers
02:57:38
Sending much love from the light blue state of Georgia who will turn out for Ossoff and Warnock to take back our democracy!

Xenia Hadjioannou
02:59:57
In Cyprus, goats are viewed as clever and agile. They are able to figure things out (on their way to smart escapes). just like readers are seen by those who take the time to observe them and see them as meaning makers
Andrea Garcia
03:00:05
Greeting from Mexico everyone! So many memories to share!!

Stephanie McAndrews
03:00:56
I owe my professional career to Ken. He expanded my view of reading and literacy and helped guide me through the development of a graduate literacy program, the authoring of texts and the development of teachers. What a wonderful tribute this has been of Ken’s life and work! I send my love to Yetta and family!
Raymond Keith Gilyard
03:01:10
All of this for sure. And my best always to Yetta and Debra.

Amparo Clavijo

I will never forget the day I met Ken for an interview I had with him at University of Arizona. I wanted to become a doctoral student in LRC. He was so kind with me and asked me questions about my interest to come to the LRC program at UofA and about my job in Bogotá. Fortunately I had the answers for all of them. After about 20 minutes, he said. I Will see you in August here! It was march 1996. Thank you Ken for such a great opportunity to grow professionally under your guidance ! Love you!

Ken's inquisitive mind and caring for each person he met was a constant in his interactions and made a difference. No one got a "pass" from Ken's questions or from his support.
Margaret Yatsevitch
04:08:57
It has been such an honor to attend this tribute to Ken, and to hear the ways he influenced so many great minds. For me, as Yetta said, “It opened the world of language and learning for me and I’ve never gone back.” Thank you Ken. Thank you to you who put this together. Beautiful. Margaret Yatsevitch [Phinney]
Dawnene Hassett
04:10:30
Xox for socially and historically situating all aspects of Ken and Yetta’s life to this day. More than that, and potentially transcending pshycho-socio-historio- linguisitc knowledge = THERE WAS SO MUCH LOVE!! :)
