Hi Dave - Thanks for commenting about blogging. I am a big believer in journals and readers response. I have my students write "thinking stems" which basically describe what they are thinking/feeling/seeing/noticing/ while they read. I am going to have them do this on the blog. I'm hoping that once they see the "world" comment, they will get excited!
