I thought you might! This was inspired by your post in Book Suggestions, then I saw that KevinS had started one, so I thought to continue.

Yes, of course! I would be glad to have you. I even have some questions that I will be asking for some input on how to read certain questions in the text that I have seen while trying to finish the MW.

As you have already led one of these projects, do you have any suggestions about reading? I did listen to a few minutes of several segments in your project to get some ideas.

I think you'll enjoy this project a good deal, though it does have its challenges. I've read ahead and see that your reading will benefit from some planning. Most of the text is straight forward enough, with a simple question and answer format, but, later, you'll see that the answers become more problematic. I don't think one should try to read the sentence diagrams, for instance. The good news there is that the text just below them seems clear enough. And there are some cases where words will have to be read and then spelled out when the meaning would be lost without the listener being given an idea of its unique spelling or the use of apostrophes and the like.

I think you'll have a lot of fun.
Drop and roll!

Well, I don't mean to a pessimist, but I don't think this project is going anywhere.

I don't wish, necessarily, to be removed as DPL, but the project just sits there on my reader's page. Might we find a next step? Open this as a group project perhaps?

Hi Kevin,

I have been thinking the same. I have run into issues in how to break it up, as the way I was going seems that all of the sections will be different lengths, which isn't horrible, but I just got overwhelmed and let it sit.

I think that a group project may be best for this.

Okay, Jason. I will turn this into a group project and move it to Readers Wanted. You will be the BC.
Cheers,

I'll help with this. I'm a Language Arts teacher, so I can read grammar reasonably well, I think. Whichever sections you'd like me to do. And is there a determined method for reading the more complex responses?

Hi guys and gals, :D

I have a few minutes, I will do the intro if that works.
