The First Day of Summer School 2008

So, I am sitting here as Tom talks about how to set up a blog. Some of the internship kids are already posting--and it has been a fascinating read. What is happening with a number of these students is that they are finding themselves being taken seriously in the outside world for the first time. One student who is interning at The Miami Herald has discovered that people "hop to" when she phones and identifies herself as a reporter for a big city paper. Another student is finding reservoirs of energy and physical strength as she tackles the challenges of boot camp. Other students will write from locations throughout the world. This promises to be an amazing summer in terms of my access to the kids' reflections on their learning.
