Thank you to everyone who has responded on and off-list.  I appreciate
the many good ideas and suggestions, and I have found the recommended
books and attention-catchers very helpful.  As a teacher-in-training, I
can use all the help I can get, and I am extremely grateful to have such
a wonderful community of experts to be able to ask.

Hannah
