My Summer Roller Coaster

A notice to the followers of this blog — during the next two months I will be doing the bulk of my year-long work as a consultant. I will be leading several workshops on teaching history, teaching writing, and teaching analytical thinking. I will be making such a variety of presentations that each day will be a struggle to make sure I have remembered to bring the right materials. If not for “Clear for Mac,” an app that never fails to keep me headed in the right direction, I'm not sure I would be able keep things straight.

In any case, I will not be posting on this blog again until early August. Stay with me. The blog has been too much fun for me to abandon it. I wish I could say that I’ll return “tanned, rested, and ready,” but I’ll be too busy over the next two months for that to happen. Instead, I’ll be ready in August to begin writing again because I will finally have reached the end of the roller coaster that I call “summer.”

If you have just discovered this blog, I invite you to go back and read a sampling of what I have been posting. Check out the "Blog Archive," "Popular Posts," and "Labels" located on the sidebar for something that looks interesting. A few of my favorites are listed below.

    I really loved your latest post on "My Summer Roller Coaster". I have gone ahead and added "Writer Smith" to my Flipbaord. Keep writing awesome stuff, and I will keep reading it.

    Thanks again,
