But I did find it in my bookmarks, (forgot which browser I had it on), and gathered the needles and built a new haystack for colleagues. (I really need to do a better job of tagging these posts.) In my head: You need this book. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=mrsk06-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=1936891352&asins=1936891352&linkId=357565df0e5d73ef1bec4bfa62b72556&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true&price_color=333333&title_color=1b1f24&bg_color=dfe6f0 And links: Actively Learn NewsELA Artifact (DiscoverArtifact) CommonLit…
