    Hi, all,

    Cheryl's message reminds me that she's planning to adapt some of the ideas
    she's seen in the In Search of the Novel series for use in a group Hyperstudio
    where students will encourage their classmates to read a book they chose during
    a free-choice novel unit. Doesn't that sound exciting?

    Since people are already volunteering lots of classroom ideas, I think that a
    good use of this listserve space for those of you who are taking the course for
    college credit would be to bounce project ideas off of one another as well.
    That way, you can take advantage of the group's feedback before you actually
    submit your project, and I (as Instructor of Record) won't be the only audience
    for what I'm sure will be some innovative teaching approaches.

    - Cindy
