[Today is Tuesday, July 30; I have a very busy week in store making the rounds of job interviews, so I am publishing The Weekly Text for this week today.]
The dog days have arrived. You are, I hope, by a body of cool water with your favorite cold beverage nearby. Remember: stay cool and hydrated!
The Weekly Text for this first Friday in August is this reading on muckraker Jacob Riis and its attendant vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet. New York City teachers, nota bene: Riis’s name is on parks, monuments, and buildings in your town.
If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
