Story Time!

A neat blog post about teaching science through stories, which, as the author explains, is how scientists who've mastered their subject matter think about developments in their fields.

Clinton: new votes in Michigan and Florida

DETROIT - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton bluntly challenged Barack Obama to agree to new primaries in Michigan and Florida on Wednesday and said it was "wrong, and frankly un-American" not to have the two delegations seated at the Democratic National Convention.
"Senator Obama speaks passionately on the campaign trail about empowering the American people," said the former first lady, who trails her rival in delegates won to date. "Today I am asking him to match those words with actions."
Obama has yet to declare his support or opposition, although his campaign has raised a number of procedural and legal questions about the most recent proposal for an early June primary in Michigan.

Hi Natasha-

I apologize for commenting on topic...

Teaching via stories is a good idea.

I liked Flatland as a high schooler.

I got a lot out of Goldratt's The Goal.

Ditto Herman Hesse's Siddhartha, which, for me, as a lot less opaque than all those silly koans.
