In part B, I started the recitations by asking for volunteers to get things started. I offered a special carrot as motivation for these students in the form of bonus credit. The free bonus credit was offered on the first day of recitations and then I drew names out of a hat.
I haven't seen the new book that you describe below, but Idid see a book by a Canadian author which featured beautiful art work that illustrated " The Cremation of Sam McGee." I received this book from one of my students from 20 years ago!
As for The Highway Man, I always cried when I reached the conclusion. Pretty embarrassing for a wrestling coach!
Thanks for writing,
