    I have two things to say:
    1. I am sad to say that I had to give up my copy of GR&W for the summer, so I am not able to share in the reading, but I will do my best to put my 2cents in and share with the discussing;

    2. Scheduling always seems to be a problem. We use the 2 and 1/2 hour literacy block in my school and we still have problems keeping to it. We finally ended up setting our own parameters as to what could work. For example, we have library (an actual session where librarian does an author/genre study or where students go on a WEBQUEST) once a week for 40 minutes. This block of time interfered with my literacy block and there seemed to be no way around it, so we just allowed it bo part of the literacy blcok for that day. In other words, we had a shorter WW than normal and RW was usally spent responding to whatever was done in library. I was very content with this flexability and hope this works again in Septemember.

    As to other issues with scheduling, do what you can. I think it is most important to keep the better part of the 2 and 1/2 hour blck if you can, but when you have Phys. Ed smack in the middle of your morning, there is nothing you can do, you just continue your Literacy Blcok when you come back. The 30 minute Word Work section is usually the most flexable in terms of time so I usually will put that blcok after Phys. Ed on that day. I hope this helps and doesn't confuse anyone in anyway. Be blessed and happy reading/discussing!-
