I've updated some more stuff to the lesson plan. It now has a jump to the
rubric and to the resources.
I'll talk to you Tuesday about the rest of the details in your missive.
I did the first part with the class and I'll be doing more this week.
Hope you feel better - your #2 was out Thursday and Friday, too, so no
library and I couldn't get into the office to get some faxs.
I felt cut off from the world!!
