4 Steps: Phase II (advanced)
Today, October 12, 2010, I had a rewarding day because all of the planning for school I did this weekend in my apartment paid off after our three day weekend. Imagine, if you will, me late at night in my apartment staring at a computer screen making revision after revision to my “Do Now” post and then watching 85 students work productively on that same lesson the next day in school.
In The Other Side, by Dan Berenger, pages 1-10, I had a boring time reading because the new story I am reading is currently in the exposition stage, and I don’t care about the main character James at all. Imagine, if you will, how I felt after reading an entire page of words and then realizing that I didn’t pay attention to a single word of the bland text.
