An Easy One...

1. Grab the closest book to you
2. Open to page 123
3. Look down to the 4th sentence
4. Comment the text of the next 5 lines
5. Include the title and the author's name

I got all the way to the comment on the next five lines and got tired... so it's not as easy as you might think.

I do have a book that looks like that though.

I read that wrong. I thought you said comment the fifth line. Well here's the rest....

The particular house to which we were directed was a large, old-fashioned, Early Georgian edifice, with a flat brick face broken only by two deep bay windows on the ground floor. It was on this ground floor that our client lived, and, indeed, the low windows proved to be the frot of the huge room in which he spent his waking hours. Holmes pointed as we passed the small brass plate which bore the curious name.

Does the material on the opening pages of the chapter or section on evolution engage and focus student thinking on interesting questions, problems, or relevant issues? Does the material provide a sequence of learning activities connected in such a way as to help students build understanding of a fundamental concept?

Teaching About Evolution and the Nature of Science, NAS

Boring I know!

The book closest doesn't have that many pages.

"Baby Proof," Emily Giffin

"'Uh-huh,' I say. Jess does look great in just about about every photo I've ever seen of her. I think it's because her face is so symmetrical, which I once read is the very thing that makes someone beautiful. The article said that even babies are drawn to faces with symmetry."
