Glitter (v.) to add sparkle, excitement, and vitality to that which is dull and unimaginative

Jot (v.) to quickly pen a line before the thought flits away, perhaps never to be recaptured


Khaled Hosseini ~ The Kite Runner

I know I've been teaching a spectacular book when... juniors are texting each other about the chapter's outcome: "Can you believe...?!"; they refuse a free reading day because "we have to talk about what happened!"; or in the same breath they say, "Make it a quick discussion...we need to know what happens next!"
