To be fair, half of the books that I am finishing this week have been in the process for the past month. but i would still like to recognize the fact that i am finishing them all! :) This was an interesting read for future english teachers..... there were some new ways of explaining the importance of alternative media such as comic books and political cartoons. this would be great if you ever have to give a solid reason why you are using the particular medium in a class to a nosy parent or principle. i'll copy a few lesson plans out of here. i will not, however, be reading story books to my older students. i mean really? reading the leaf man did nothing for me, even though i am trained to pick up on literary cues. i'm just sayin'.
