"Visiting the Osborne, and Yelling at Students"

I barked at my Ryerson students today. Almost none of them did the readings. :( Sad. But I guess it is just my old sins coming back to haunt me. I really did plan for a nice discussion on Lisa Nakamura's book Cybertypes. Harumph. Before that, I took my Vic1 class to the amazingly wonderful Osborne collection of early children's books. Yuka works there, as you well know or know now. Head Librarian Leslie McGrath gave the students an excellent lecture on the resources at the collection, how and why original source materials are to be used, and just gave a great general introduction to the collection and researching literary resources. Tomorrow's class will be a duplicate of this one. Wednesday and Thursday will focus on LM Montgomery and Anne related issues. Vic1 is certainly going to be the highlight of my week."
