I’m only a few pages in and already love the intimacy of the letters. Couldn’t help but think of Coates’ letter to his son, Baldwin’s to his nephew

Love that 1+1=3 riff. Each rhyme contains the individual words’ meanings and a third meaning, namely, the juxtaposition of those particular two. Thanks!

Uh, yes to all : ) The guidance is usually S-directed: Tell me two things that inspired you and that you hope to incorporate--a tone, a rhet device, a phrase, etc. I'll be transparent about what I'm choosing to model and how well I thought it went

Maybe I misunderstood the Q : ) But having a place for disc of mentor-text to live allows for Ss to be fully present during the conversation, and allows the T to know in advance what parts of a text interested Ss (before they go off to write on their own)

A2 Try to talk to each S as often as possible about something other than your class. Demonstrate that their opinions on many things matter to you

The first “multicultural” book I was ever assigned—freshman year of college. I mean, a heckuva place to start, but I’ve been catching up since 📚🙂

Discovered Joan Murray's poetry thanks to the Yale Younger Poets Anthology! Listen, and read, and keep her work alive.
