  1. Add another site.  Many of my students read “Fool’s Crow” this summer at the local library and joined in book discussions.

  2. I made extensive notes on the book a year ago, and I’m still trying to find time to write them up into some sort of essay.

    It’s on my short list of Montana books that deals with questions that I think kids need to be thinking about: the relationship between individual success and community well-being, the balance between our various family roles and responsibilities (son, husband, father), and how to live in unstable and dangerous times.

  3. I’ve got a day scheduled with the local librarian to talk about the discussion on Fool’s Crow.  I’ll be interested to see what the students cam up with.

  4. When is that? It sounds like another thing I would like to come to, if there’s a way. As soon as I’m in St Ignatius for more than few hours, I’ll get you my September and October schedule to see if we can find a time for me to come over there.

  5. Sounds good.  I’ll have some things planned.

  6. This year, for the first time in HHS, I am teaching a Native American Studies Class Spring Semester.  Renee, who was the facilitator at Chester for the discussion?  Nancy

  7. It was our local librarian.  She’s a rather black and white person, so I’m not sure how good the discussions were.  I do know she’d make sure the kids read the book.
