So in light of that, hopefully you can be patient a few days longer while I get some content together. Meanwhile, the Learning Objectives, Materials and Resources Page is a good place to start, if you're looking for big themes and some helpful ideas for tools, sources and suggestions on where to start.  

And here are some links to sites I've found super helpful in putting together my lessons:  Shmoop is an education site - it describes itself as a "rollicking homework help, teacher resources, and online test prep. Homework help lovingly written by PhD students from Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley."  I do a fair amount of literary stuff, especially poetry in the great Anglican tradition (like John Donne, and George Herbert), and Shmoop is an awesome resource, funny and insightful.

The Saint Nicholas Center has a lot of fascinating material on this mysterious and influential bishop.  A great way to transition from childhood to a more mature understanding.

Sometimes I get good ideas from, especially their columnists, like Anne Lamott, for example.

Donald Miller is kind of a hero of mine, and his Storylineblog is always awesome.
