Seven Gunn Says will discuss issues of entertainment and how it correlates with education. This blog is also created to make connections with entertainment and pop culture through unique perspectives. Information and analysis is key when evaluating and critiquing the arts. The educational component will be demonstrated through youth perspectives, psychology, and cultural awareness. As an educator, that's taught in NYC and Chicago and someone that has been involved in the entertainment industry, Ms. Gunn offers a unique perspective on how language, culture, music, television and film effect the community and our youth.
