Last night I was teary, overwhelmed, astounded, exhausted, and now I'm just GIDDY!!!!! Can't wait to hear what my students have to say about this today. I'm sure they'll have lots of interesting comments.
In other news, what better occasion to join a new reading challenge?! The lovely and fantastic Lezlie from Books 'N Border Collies has assembled the U.S. Presidents Reading Project! This challenge asks us to read one non-fiction book about each of the presidents (although dependent on our interest, we may also read books about multiple presidents and count the book toward all of those included).
This election has really fired my interest in politics and history for the last few years. so this challenge seems right up my alley!
I think I'll start by finishing Dreams from My Father, by our President-Elect, Barack Obama!!!
Now I hope you'll all take the plunge with us! There's no time limit on this one, just a leisurely exploration of our national leadership. Woot!
