ko - koko - kokology? What?!?

John Kim introduced the book last April, I guess for a summer read. The authors give you this situations where you are asked to like choose a reponse (similar to that of a quiz you read in magazines, you know that!) and then they get to interpret your response.

It is in actuality a game book in Japan. I wonder what made them make it into a science.

poetry - mini forest style

I asked my senior students to do their poems in the mini forest. Each one will have to submit a contribution for their compilation of poems.

Nevertheless, I think these guys need to stretch their perspective by actually changing their usual, their routine.
Did I forget to mention these guys can write good poetry?
