Maria Allocco on Blogging, Mythology and The American ExperinceHey Mr. Mody, I hope everything is going well even though I know you can't ever replace our mythology class from last year. I just wanted to let you know that the other day in one of my classes the teacher started talking about blogs and a lot of the kids in the class were confused. Then she asked who knew how to make a blog and I was one of three people who raised their hands. So even though I hated it and complained a lot I guess I have to say thank you for teaching me how to blog now that it's coming in to use for me. I also just had to read a book ...

Zach Wood on AmEx Middle East Poster ProjectsHey
Mody- last year I remember doing a project in AmEx which involved
making a poster about the United Arab Emirates. Now one of my closest
friends [and neighbors] here at Dartmouth is from the UAE [Dubai]. It's
cool to see the applications of what we learned!Zach Wood (via Facebook Wall Post)

Kaitlyn Madden on Page Limits in MythologyI was assigned a paper for my honors class, in which I not only used mythology (!), but I had to keep in a 2-3 page limit. My original draft was four pages. Using a "what would Mr. Mody hate" method, I was able to get it down to two and and a half pages. And my editing made it much clearer and more succinct, or at least I think so.So tell your whiny myth students that the pages limits are actually good for them, in the long run. (Because I wish someone had told me that.)Kaitlyn Madden via Gmail

Jordan Armstrong on The American ExperienceHey Mr Mody, I had a moment in my communications class today that I thought you would appreciate. My professor here uses youtube everyday to begin our conversations in class. Today we listened to the lyrics to Pink's song "Raise Your Glass"The ironic part to this was that while we were listening, I was thinking about how we did sort of the same thing with "Stupid Girls" last fall. After we were done my professor told us that this was his first time using this song because previously he also used "stupid girls". I let him know that I had done this same type of activity with you in HS and he seemed very interested in the context ...

Sylvia Kinosian on BloggingSO- I just got back from my first Anthropology class and our final project is going to be a blog! We'll use the posts as an essay of sorts I do believe. Hooray for AmEx and Mythology! You can inform any whiners in your classes of the relevance and importance of modern technology in education these days. ;)- Sylvia Kinosian
