i read about in the tassajara bread book (nice reference).

my understanding of the sponge method is that you mix the warm water, yeast,
sugar, and about half the flour and let it rise for a while: that's the
sponge. you then add the rest of the flour, let it rise again and go from there.

the explanation in _the tassajara bread book_ is probably a lot better.
