I know the urge to load up an iPod is almost insurmountable, but we're going to try and party on this desert island like it's 1999. I think later on, I'll make it five artifacts in each genre, but for today these are my 5 essentials:

QUESTION: Quote about Learning and what is left over?

"Only what you remember is learning"

Hey, Ryan! It's good to see you back in the game! And congratulations on your doctorate!!! I just started a PhD program (Literacy/TESOL with St. John's U in Queens) in the spring semester, so I would LOVE to hear more about your program and your dissertation. -Jo Hawke

Thanks Ryan. Just wrote a book on bullying with my two teenage sons. We plan to do others, so it's always interesting to hear what folks think is missing from the world of kids' lit. Take a look if you get a chance:

Thank you,

Thanks for the group recommendations Ryan! I joined the site in one of my 'scouring the internet for a certain resource' journeys and never got around to really exploring it. But I joined the group and will make a note to explore this place more soon :)
