Bk2-Chs 21-22 – A Tale of Two Cities


Bach’s Goldberg Variations, writers are fun to hang out with, but you’re afraid of our competition, My first Odeo! Looking for a dime and trying not to be a martyr. (Now you’ll have to listen. That won’t make any sense otherwise!)

Disclaimer for this week’s episode below.

Get your pattern in the Knitting Pattern-a-day Calendar* and go check out Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar… a really scary article Teresa sent in, To be or not to be? At U.S. colleges, it’s increasingly ‘not’ :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Other Views

OH! I forgot to say on the ‘Cast–there’s still one knitting book out there just waiting for a knitting disaster story. I have two…will you be the third?! Send ’em in. Don’t be shy!

Oh, and Chapters 21 and 22 of Book the Second! But, sadly, no Chip or Andy…not this week. They’ll be back though. Promise!

Don’t forget to check out Julie’s podcast!

*The 411: $500 will be awarded as First place for both calendars; there are also 2nd and 3rd place prizes; and all contributors whose patterns are used will receive a 2009 calendar. Please go to our website at http://www.knittingpatternaday.com and learn more about the submission requirements and our contest.

Good luck–and let me know if you win!!!

The “teacher as martyr” reference comes from an article I read years ago–and an idea that’s still being discussed–that teachers are only “allowed” to fall into two categories: martyrs and saints. It went on to say that in any other profession this would be unacceptable, but that for some reason, teachers tend to work (and work well) within those confines. Which means when they no longer have the time or energy to be either, they have to quit. I am not saying that all teachers are martyrs, just that there are some (myself included) who fit that category. There are others (rarely ELA teachers) who manage to have a life and be a teacher. I could never find the balance. Follow up with this entry from Michael Fullan’s book, Change Forces.


I’m Heather Ordover

Hi there and welcome!
I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do.
CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure you'll find another that is.
Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
