I have two days left of summer school. Wow. I've learned so much in these two weeks. I really like the book the ALC has for Multicultural Literature, and I find that while I enjoy reading the stories - some of the kids are really enjoying them too.
We read one of my favorites, "Here's Herbie", today.
The trailer doesn't do the short story justice. Mike Feder does an amazing job examining how we perceive ourselves and those around us.
I'm not sure if you ever have had the experience of the pin drop - when all of the sudden everyone in the room is on the same page - well - literally- and really into the story - you could hear a pin drop.
"Here's Herbie" was THAT story for this class.
