    My daughter will be participating for the 1st time in the Rhetoric Year 1 LLC. Is there any summer reading that she should be doing to get ready for the fall? Thanks.

    Hi there,
    The only summer reading before Year 1 is for Rhetoric Lit students and that is to read The Poetry Handbook.

    Blessings,

    Hey, Kelly!

    My name is Teri Skidmore, and I'll be teaching the Year 1 Rhetoric Literature class this year at LLC.

    I just wanted to confirm what Dana said--Mary Oliver's A Poetry Handbook is the only summer reading for students.

    It's nice to see a fellow Michigander family in class. We live an hour and a half north of you just outside Saginaw!

    Thanks for the responses. I will get her going on it.

    Teri, where in Saginaw are you. My whole family is originally from Saginaw. Both sets of grandparents lived near Shattuck and Hemmeter. I spent lots of time there as a child. Great memories!!

    Wow, Kelly! We live on the west side of Saginaw in Shields . . . on North Thomas Road, just off Gratiot, not too far past the Meijer on that side of town.

    What a small world!

    Sorry to startle you, Di!

    No need to worry. It really is an easy read, and not terribly long. Many kids in my class last year just read it the week before class started.

    I sent an email yesterday to students (and carboned the parents) to alert them to the summer reading assignment. If you didn't get it, please let me know. I will want to be sure I have you on my distribution list.

    So thrilled to have Ethan in my class this year. He is a delight!
