Been gone a while . . . In April and May, I was teaching eight weeks at a charter school in Benton Harbor, Michigan ~~ while living two blocks from Lake Michigan in St. Joseph; then I went to California for a week to help my younger son move out of his house of four years in LA (sad); Then I attended the AP Reading for the Exam in English Literature at Louisville (5th time). Here are my pictures from those three experiences. Next week I start a new job at my undergrad alma mater, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, teaching Writing 100 to CSP students. Subsequent blogs will feature postings on that class, reflections on assignments, student observations, and just over all impressions. Go Blue!
