It’s the Anniversary Issue!

The New Yorker arrived today.  It’s the Anniversary Issue.

Here’s my way:

1) Turn each page to admire the ads until I arrive at the table of contents.

2) Read the table of contents for favorite contributors, titles that grab my attention or subjects I’m into

3) Flip through the rest of the pages, one by one, reading the cartoons–making a mental note of the ones appropriate for the bulletin board outside my classroom (see step #6)

4) Check the Cartoon Caption Contest for folks from California (not sure why that matters)

5) Return to the articles I want to read first, second, and so on

6) After a few weeks of ‘visiting’ the issue (it sits on the coffee table in clear view), go back through the cartoons and rip out the ones to share with students

7) Check the mail for next issue.  Repeat.
