magazine article on the High Line

March 02, 2010 By: Nada Category: Reading / Vocabulary, Uncategorized

A fairly non-technical, accessible review of the High Line.  Contains a very clear description of the project that is ideal as a model of descriptive prose for students. Contributed by Cassandra Dawn.

reading and essay prompt on the purpose of education (Krishnamurti)

February 25, 2010 By: Nada Category: Reading / Vocabulary, Uncategorized, Writing

This works well as a first day exercise to get students thinking about their deep motivations for being educated. Of course, it can be used as reading/writing practice anytime during the semester as well.  The reading is on three pages; the book jacket on one page; I’ve appended the essay prompt to page two. The source is a book of J. Krishnamurti’s lectures on education called “This Matter of Culture.”
