Another letter from early in the summer quarter at Antioch, this one quite brief.
First mention of the Antioch School, a school for Antioch faculty children where Antioch students taught. (See also Antioch School 90th anniversary— A school that runs like a family.)
As usual in the letters from this period, a request for allergy meds, and a query about her father’s health. It sounds like he had some kind of eye surgery around this time.
friday Hello Just finished my syllabus for an independent study in how modern math is taught in the elementary schools--lots of reading and struggle, but ought to be worth while. working with a teacher from the Antioch school (where lots of faculty kids go; kind of a lab school--I'll be student teaching there next spring) who is kind of interested in math. it suddenly occurs to me that I have to meet with him in about 20 minutes and need to go and find some book titles. letter suddenly curtailed in the interest of same......briefly, then, all xxxx else is fine, reading a lot, doing lots of independent work, buying books, thinking, talking, and so forth. there is a swallow eating a berry outside my window. the allergy season is blossoming, and I'll need xxxx some more ambodryls pretty quick, like probably by the xxxxx time you get this. getting to be time to find a new antihistamine. hope the operation is all xxxx over and successful and recovered, and you're both home and suitably bored. let me know what's happening in that area--lenses, glasses, etc. also hope Alan's accident when I was there turned out to be minor...... really have to run; more later. love [handwritten: Marcia] [handwritten: p.s. got the package with dress, skirt, towel—thanks.]
