From the Mailbag
I frequently wonder if I am “the swimmer-cyclist lady with the funny arm” to students. What, if anything, are they actually remembering from the stories I tell? It’s obvious when I am speaking that I have their attention and definitely I know what I am trying to impart. But what’s the take-home message they are actually hearing? Is there anything they are remembering days later?
Thanks to a teacher-friend who gave a writing assignment around this question, I have a stack of “AWES-OME!” letters. The thing I learned from this letter-writer is that low filter = higher entertainment value.
p.s. I have no idea who “the man with no legs” is!
