In preparation for this weekend’s paper, let’s do some research question writing. Develop at least three questions that can arise from your Blog Post #5 assignment. For each question, use the database to find research that addresses (notice I did not say “answers”) your question.

Share this on your Blog as Post #6. But please be sure it is done before class on Wednesday. 

Also, please consider reading my story, published this weekend in Glassworks magazine.You can read it heree. Listen to it here. And read my reflection about it here. I am doing a Q&A on it at a book launch event on Thursday night. Bring questions for me to practice. Anyone who does…extra credit. If the question is good and evinces a thorough read of the story, I will give extra credit to your WHOLE FAMILY.
