2. Often, a student's good heart reassures me that there is Beauty in the world. This afternoon, a student approached me in class to let me know I had graded an answer correct on a test when, in fact, he had gotten it wrong. My co-teacher and I decided to let him keep the points because honesty should be rewarded. I also emailed his mom to let her know what a gem of a young man she is raising.
Jean Hanff Korelitz. Yes, I am inclined to like the movie because I like Jean so much and am a huge fan of Tina Fey. I will post a review soon.
Confessions of St. Augustine (print version) AND Simon Winchester's sprawling biography of the Atlantic Ocean called "Atlantic" (audio version). Loving them both.
5. Speaking of audiobooks, I'm looking for advice. These little buddies are pricey (Atlantic cost me 40 bucks) and I am underwhelmed by my local library's selection. I do have an iPad. Would Audible be worth it? If so, which plan? Thanks!
