literary travels

literary travels::  ::  ::

Travel to plan. Trip to university to plan. The World Cup to enjoy. A Grand Tour to take.

I’m particularly excited about my plan to use “Africa United: Soccer, Passion, Politics and the First World Cup” as a daily read aloud during the World Cup.  In my mind (you know, the one where everything is shiny and amazing) we’ll enhance our love of soccer while I cunningly teach us all geography & geo-politics. We’ll become better world citizens.  Possibly the children will weep and thank me for my genius.

“College Without High School is meant to stop me staying awake nights worrying, and then I’ll hand it over to Sandra so she can grasp her future warmly by the hand.

    He he… I love that really clever feeling that comes over me sometimes when I teach, but I know too that it has to be taken with a grain of salt :)

    I’m so glad I am not the only one with pretty ideas in my head.

    I must find College Without High School. It’s a worry here, too, though I should know better by now. Those I know who were de-schooled children have made amazing, intelligent adults with or without college.

    College without highschool.. hadn’t heard of that book. Thanks for sharing it.

    Love your dreams and aspirations for the World Cup. We’re not sports fans at all so all that learning opportunity is simply lost to us ;-)
