I found a small, 128MB mp3 player at Toys R Us for fifteen bucks. Since I only use such devices when I run, and since an hour and twenty minutes’ music covers more time than my out-of-shape legs can, it’s a great purchase.
In Hebrew Bible teaching news, the first day of Joseph went entirely too quicly, so quickly that I ran out of time in both sections before I could get to writing instruction. I’ll have to start next class with writing and then launch into discussions of the narrative and the Robert Alter chapter I’m having them read.
I’m looking forward already to teaching the Psalms again, and I think that the revision groups for that paper will once again prove most helpful.
