I’m here in Detroit at the airport with 5 of my traveling companions. We’re waiting for 2 or 3 more people. In an hour we start boarding for our flight to Japan where we’ll meet the rest of our cohort who are flying in from the west coast. At the moment everybody is on their laptops or iPads working on lessons, their blogs, or our research question. We all have to develop a research question that will serve as a focal point of our professional development
experience. I’m interested in environmental issues, and have been asked to teach a lesson on recycling but haven’t yet articulated my research question. Everybody seems to be in the same boat, which is comforting. We’re already working together and sharing ideas. This is going to be a great travel group!
