Re: What have you done this semester?

Second LifeMy class for first-year students "Between Shadow and Light: Cosmopolitanism in Virtual and Physical Worlds" worked out great this semester - a better balance between using the virtual world of Second Life to practice interviewing "the stranger" from another land and their in-person interviews with our University's English-language learners.

Re: What have you done this semester?

Each semester I teach one section of the US history survey as US Women's History. This is the first time I have had a majority of men in the class. It has been especially rewarding to see them get so involved in the fight for equality. I do a lot of activities during class time and to see these guys - many of them athletes - being so passionate about health care, suffrage, education, and so on has been wonderful.
