The University of Iowa School of Education's Curriculum Lab was dismantled a couple of years ago. It was a sad day for education students and practicing teachers. The contents of the book library have resurfaced at the U of I 's surplus facility, where teachers and librarians can browse through the thousands of books and take what they want for free. I spent an hour there this afternoon and filled the back of my Escape (middle picture - I had forgotten I had toner cartridges to recycle in there already!). The facility employees said there are still more containers to unpack, so I'll probably return after lunch with the IASL AASL Leadership Academy participants.
