  1. I’m a fan of David Naimon (well, he’s my cousin’s son, so of COURSE I’m a fan)

    I’m a high school teacher so I have assigned this podcast to my students to see how to ask questions and how to go to the next level of reading… “contact the author”… yes, go ahead and write some questions about the process of writing and reading. Go ahead, students… ask questions the way that David asks…
