"Thank you so much for coming to
share this with us. It is so
amazing; I feel as if I’ve
walked into a whole new world.
This has been an absolutely
delightful experience. Thank you!"

 

"This is sooo suspenseful!
It’s the first time I’ve been on the edge of my
seat reading something. Usually it’s a movie, but
this introduction surpasses all of that!"
"Having you
read it to
us—as the
author—helped
a lot (reading
the intro.)
You do
a good
job of
writing
very
interesting-
ly w/o
using
big
words.
Even I
was
interested,
and usually
that is
not an
easy job.
I really
wonder how
many people
have ever
thought
about a
second
meaning.
   
"I understand
your
need to
find
answers
and show
them to
others."
 

I tested my ideas for the
very first time on bright
high school juniors. After a
bit of introduction, I guided
them through “a game.”
Here are some unforgettable
reactions written in the
margins of the handout.

 
       
 
"I like the colloquial style of writing that
you use. It helps to maintain interest on
an already fascinating idea."
 
"I like the idea of the game, and
how you take the readers through
                   your thought process."
 
   
"I really want to thank you for sharing these ideas with us—I’m so amazed
at your love for Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales. I really hope one day I can find
a topic that interests me as much."
  "I admire you.
and your
dedication
tremendously."
   

That
makes
you a very special and important person. Thank you
for spending time to talk to our class. I feel very privileged
to have known this information before much of the world."

"I enjoyed the personal
feeling of the writing. I felt
like you were talking
directly to me."
