Hope this gets through to you. I have spent a good deal of time trying to find a means of contacting you since your leaving UCF. I know you will recognize my disappointment at not being able to chat with you. This has left a hole in my brain where strange ideas I come up with I can't bring up like I did in our brief meetings! Currently, I am able to talk with Scott Wise. He utilizes my brain in his foundations classes: Issues and Learning Theory. I am called a Visiting Lecturer and have attended one of his classes each semester for a few years. It gives me a chance to develop perspectives on learning and the brain. One of these is titled: Learning and Life. It turns on the idea that I told you about, Content as Human Competence and the strategy of starting curriculum with the students' experiences (you read my draft of that and made some very positive responses). I have included your letter to me about that in correspondence to USEd Secretary Duncan and Bill Gates with regard to the need to change the paradigm of instruction in this country. I would be happy to send some of these perspectives to you if you are interested. I would be happy to hear from you and to see you. We could do a Skype, I imagine.
Anyway, I hope you receive this in good health and spirit. Please know that I always considered you a friend, not just a valued colleague.
