writing challenge update

Since I had to be at the site early this morning, I did my 15 minutes (which is fast becoming 30 minutes, thank you) this evening. I am pleased to report lots of words are appearing on the page as if by magic. Maybe I am channeling someone? In any event, Chapter 3 is shaping up nicely.

The crowd today (more than 50) loved listening to book talks, to audioclips from the Odyssey winners, to ideas for assessment and the like. A few brave souls stayed after I finished to ask more questions. There is a hunger for books to use with middle and high school students. Makes me feel something is going right in the world.

Writing: 30 minutes
Words: 350 or so, I keep forgetting to note where I begin and end. DUH!
