I like how you compared research to a puzzle. I had never thought of it that way, but that's a very good analogy. It's true that the research is the gathering and the learning process. In order to learn, you have to gather the needed information and in turn, you learn the answer to the question you set out to find.

      I like the wording of puzzle. Very nicely put. He did find out different "meanings" to what a memory was. So he started "plugging" in his information to which piece worked for her! I like that. Tonya

          I read it today, and the kids loved it! I actually had two girls cry because they got so connected with the character. I shared with others in the school, and by the end of the day 5 other teachers... more

            It's wonderful when it "clicks" with students in understanding each person is unique! Each person has their own story about what "something means" and its importance to them.
