    As I listen to your wonderful ideas, I keep thinking what is this going to look like in my class. I find myself pausing and checking out things mentioned: portfolios, Casthy Fasnot, the 5 practices.

    The first few weks of my classes can be tough as the memorizers realize that strategy is not going to garuntee success. This year, I need to have a brochure for parents and students at the start of the year.
