Well, it's the night before my first Introduction to Engineering class. I'm not studying, mind you, I got my chemical engineering degree back in the 90's. I'm teaching. Homeschoolers, 30 of them. There'll be me, ten different colored dry-erase markers, a whiteboard, and not much else. This year I've spent a lot of time thinking through the curriculum and mostly decided that I have a lot of great ideas and am terrible at paring them down and organizing them. "Murdering my darlings," my husband quotes from some poet. I'm telling my class that they need to journal their reflections, interests, loves/hates, inventions, all for learning. Audience Dialogue gave me a great foundation and a set of questions for them to answer. I might as well take my own advice, so I'll blog this year. Wish me luck.
