Take a look at my newest blog site, literacylessons.wordpress.com It should be easier to find, and it has a new look. If you have not checked out this particular blog before (I have posted some things on both sites, but some are original to LL.) you will find postings by students of Advanced Writing classes, statistics and thoughts on reading and writing, and comments on how schools and the teaching of literacy have changed in 50 years. In 2019, I will post books written by preK-2nd graders at the school where I volunteer on Tuesdays and stories of a new challenge at the Family Community Center where I volunteer on Thursdays. Even though I have officially retired from university teaching, I will continue to teach, but will not be paid for it. Come join me on my new adventure.
