I've spent the past several days living in my brain and books. Writing, writing, writing.
Today I will switch gears and start reading--student papers. However, I plan to have fun with this. I'm packing up and heading to the coffee shop. And when I get there I look forward to learning about what 22 students have to teach me. Grading papers is hard work, but in the end it always turns out to be a pretty good deal. I'm amazed by the strange things I know because of what they've written about.
