Believe It Or Not

I predict that one day, in the not too distant future, veteran teaching artists will tell tall tales of the long ago days when we worked in schools with classroom teachers we had never met. 

Anecdotes about "the time I was teaching a workshop and the classroom teacher was grading papers"  will leave incredulous audiences dumbstruck. 

Stories about "the time we showed up and they had forgotten we were coming" will make conferences halls rock with laughter. Teaching artists of the future will confusedly ask "You mean they made you work without a desk or an office of your own? How did they expect you to write lesson plans?" 

Dream on...

Also: Our book of the day is Understanding By Design by By Grant P. Wiggins, Jay McTighe. This book is made of gold, or it should be.
