I'm here in lovely Denver attending the American Educational Research Association's conference. I'll be updating with some thoughts on interesting presentations I see over the next few days . . . as long as I don't freeze first. My initial impression of Denver is distinctly positive, but waking up to snow yesterday morning after wearing shorts and a t-shirt the previous day was a bit of a shock to the system. If anybody else is here, please feel free to seek me out and say hi.
