In thinking about my November NCTE presentation with Pat, I’ve been trying to guess where the general public’s and teacher public’s recognition level will be by then. I’m hoping they’s have a little more exposure by then. This article in the Charlotte News Observer seems to think that will be the case.
Quote: “Ruby isn’t out to change national politics. ‘By writing my thoughts down, it helps me to clarify them,’ he says. ‘And I am watching who is watching me. It’s been a great way to make friends across the country and around the world. It’s just been a blast.'”
Wouldn’t it be nice to get some students and teachers saying that by the end of the year???
