Best Book I Have Not Read

Writing, Reading, Teaching, Life, Attempting to Balance it All

Things I’m excited (and a little worried) about March 16, 2009

Here’s the short list of what I’m excited (and worried) about:

I’ve never been to New  York City (unless you count the airport, which I don’t!).

I’m going to stay with the parents of a teaching friend and take the train into the city each day.  

It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a non-suburban school.  

I have never used public transportation in North America and not since the early 1990’s. 

What am I taking to read with me?
Hunger by Michael Collins

Drood by Dan Simmons

Reading for Real by Kathy Collins 

a magazine of some sort

We’ve also been asked to bring Units of Study-Small Moments: Personal Narrative Writing and Raising the Quality of Narrative Writing, our favorite picture book for primary and intermediate schools, and student work samples.  I think I’m going to bring In November by Cynthia Rylant and Thundercake by Patricia Polacco.  It’s really hard to decide!
