Hey, Mr. Lehmann. Earlier today, I Twittered the following (to which you responded "Sure." soon after):
I wasn't kidding when I responded to your Tweet:
Part 1: "You might suspect irony in my 'voice', but truthfully -- sincerely -- I LOVE this project, even with 100+ (responses received) every Sunday night".
Part 2: "Why? Exponentially increasing relationships w/ the kids. & many (other) teachers now mention "Your kids are talking about...""
You see, I really meant that business. Completely transformative element in what is otherwise a 'classic' classroom dynamic. Really. Sincerely. Truly.
