Working Independently

Day to Day

I get up at 2 p.m. Five days a week, in late afternoon and evening I meet with classes of 1 - 5 students ranging from 8 - 18 and occasionally adults. From time to time I edit a book or major scientific article, typically working at night and sending comments to the author that he or she can respond to the next day. In my classes, we read aloud and discuss stories, articles, and books whose conceptual level and vocabulary are typically well above the assumed level of the class. We stretch.
