I also remember asking Mr. Stone if I could have extra credit. He said "Sure, write a paper about The Causes of the Industrial Revolution in Denmark." Imagine I still remember this title! I never did it, I am sure now he was joking...we were only 8 years old! It made me think though! Now I wonder where he went???
I wish all teachers would have the opportunity to share something they love with their students, and also ask kids of all ages to present to others. Thanks to Donna Marie and her Speakeasy for bringing out this story in me today.
