Thanks to WendyB for introducing me to both (I think) of the above! I don't think I've ever (hardly?) mentioned here my obsession with style and fashion, so now you know!

- introducing the reading comprehension and critical thinking software called GamCo with 8th grade students and colleagues today, meanwhile learning pondering the uses of the software myself
