When we work with children we often discover talkworthy texts. These are the pieces that draw us in and invite us to uncover a deeper meaning and to build our own unique understanding. And so it is with conversation. Whether it is a reflective conversation with oneself or with a group of others, the talk moves us to deeper understanding and a broader view of our thinking. Here's hoping that all our conversations will be talkworthy.

I am in the airport waiting for my flight home from NCTE in San Antonio. It was a great conference this year. I am tired but energized. I will be blogging about it some this week.
