Post Discussion Questions....
Tom, you might want to use some of these discussion questions I found at http://www.cliffsnotes.com/WileyCDA/Lit ... um-43.html I'm not sure if you are already covering all or some of these suggested discussion questions, but here they are for use as you please. I'd think any questions you decide to use would work well as it's one thread, but you handle it however you like.
