Close reading

I don't want to burst your bubble, but if this is your first close reading lesson, it is not something I would try for the first time as an observation lesson. Students need to be taught what close...

Eyeglass Prescription

I've never had to even ask, he hands a copy to me and tells me to keep it in case I break my glasses when I am traveling. I've always had a copy of the prescription.
