Day 1: Let's do it!
Today's goal: Dig for ideas you think are interesting and relevant.
Please have a list of at least 10 questions by tomorrow.

We've carved out almost two weeks of classtime to read this text before we head off next Friday to see the film with STEAM Academy. Reading is a rewarding experience, but seeing a new film based on the book you're reading...even better. :)

BestWelcome back all! We're going to kick off this semester with one more writing project before we're back into a heavy duty literature study.
One of my favorite things about the year's end is the wealth of "Best Of" lists published all over the place. I love reading folks' ideas of the Best Books, Best Movies, Best Gadgets, Best Memes, Best Twitter Fueds, and so on. For me, it tends to be a bit of delectable brain candy and a pleasurable way to think back on the past year's trends, hits, and misses.
I thought it might be fun for us to create our own Best Of lists.
