TOP SECRET Video of The Ha-Ha Sisterhood Performing "Summer Conference": LIVE, from LWI!

Sheila_simonBeazley_marybethTemple_hollee_sOne of the absolute highlights of this summer's LWI conference in Indianapolis was the plenary session on "Divine Secrets of the Ha-Ha Sisterhood," with Sheila Simon (Southern Illinois University), Mary Beth Beazley (The Ohio State University), and Hollee Temple (West Virginia University). 

We should have taped the whole thing, especially all of the useful teaching tips that they shared.  We don't have that though.  What do we have?  A video, taken by my partner David Austin, and the lyrics to the closing song of their absolutely fantastic presentation.

Appearing Nightly (oops: Biannually)...the Ha-Ha Sisterhood!

Starring Sheila Simon, Mary Beth Beasley, and Hollee Temple in their rousing rendition of "Summer Conference" as performed at the LWI 2008 Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.

CLICK BELOW HERE on "DOWNLOAD" to SEE THE VIDEO  (Depending on your computer and how many others are watching the video at the same time, it may take a few minutes to load.  If so, just give it a click and go get some coffee.)   Turn up the volume and follow along with the words.   (Sing along too, unless at the office.  Gosh, who are we to say?  Go ahead and sing along at the office too!)

Lwi_logoSummer conference, had me a blast,
Summer conference, happened so fast,
Met a girl, crazy like me!
Met a boy who does, technology.
Summertime, so glad that I'm, a-at ah, L-W-I.

[well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!]

Tell me more, tell me more, did you learn to critique?
Tell me more, tell me more, isn't power-point chic?

[ah-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha]

There were sessions, made just for me
Where I learned, pedagogy
I can make, my students smile
'cause I know, each learning style!
Summer fun, gets the job done, a-at ah, L-W-I

[well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!]

Tell me more, tell me more, will my dean throw a fit?
Tell me more, tell me more, can I really say "sh*t"?

[Down doobie do, doobie do, doobie, doobie, doobie, Down doobie do, doobie do, doobie, doobie, doobie]
[uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh]

Great assignments, we mapped the way
Learned to work with, the A.D.A.
Popcorn sessions, they really rock
We stayed out, 'til ten o'clock!
Summer nights, Indy in lights, a-at ah, L-W-I

[Whoa, whoa, whoa]

Tell me more, tell me more, did you get lots of swag?
Tell me more, tell me more, like to fill up a bag?

[Shoo bop-bop, shoo bop-bop, shoo bop-bop, shoo bop-bop, shoo bop-bop, shoo bop-bop, shoo bop-bop, yeah]

We met up with, friends that we knew
And hung out with, new members too
Presentation, by Jan Levine
He was good, you know what we mean!
Summer heat, people you meet, a-at ah, L-W-I

[Whoa, whoa, whoa]

Tell me more, tell me more, did you spot a new trend?
Tell me more, tell me more, can I e-mail your friend?

[slower tempo]

Then comes Thursday, that's when it ends
I was huggin', all my new friends
Then we made, our farewell vow
Help each other, starting right now
Teaching seems, just like a dream, Thanks to you, L-W-I!

Tell me more, tell me more!

Congratulations again to the LWI Conference Planners for Picking the Ha-Ha Sisterhood as the Conference's Opening Act!  Hat tip to David Austin for the video, and even bigger hat tips to Sheila, Mary Beth, and Hollee for allowing us to post this here.
