    that’s a big ol’ list. When did you publish in the Shane newsletter? i think i must have missed that, wouldn’t mind checking it out if it’s somewhere online – i’m struggling to integrate lessons into my classes, outside of some i’ve made up/tweaked and keep rehashing :(.

  2. Alex Case says:

    You’re reading my mind. Plan to put links to all the articles mentioned on here, including putting the Shane ones up. Will start on that right now….

  3. Laurent says:

    cool. good luck with that, sounds like a bit of a herculean task going by that list – and i know how tedious that kinda work can be at times. Look fwd to being able to check them though!
