Hi Stacy! I am so thrilled to find your site!! =) I'm a 7th grade teacher in Idaho and I'm taking an inquiry class that Jeff Wilhelm developed. His book that you have recommended is part of our reading list. Our assignment is to develop an inquiry unit on curriculum that we already use and I chose the Outsiders. I just finished the school year with it, and my students still love it! I felt sad as well watching the movie this year knowing that Patrick Swayze had passed away. I love the versatility and relevance of the book. I have used it all of my teaching years, but I wanted to reframe it with inquiry. Anyway, I wanted to get permission to use some of your materials. I will give you all the credit! I love essential questions you posted for The Outsiders and the opinionaire. There are many things I want to use from your vast and wonderful site...in fact, I have spent the whole day today gleaning from your knowledge! Thank you for sharing. I ordered "I can't keep my own secrets" and the Barry Gilmore book. Anyway, great job on your blog (typepad). You also have so many great technology ideas! I can't wait to look into some that are new to me. Thanks so much! Sincerely, Nikki Mathews Kimberly Middle School Twin Falls, Idaho mnmathews@cableone.net
