TJ-1. on a good day anyway....mostly I look at the pictures.
2. We do a two-week explorations class at the end of the year, students can choose from a variety of classes, and we only have to teach one two-hour block. I am partnering with one of our teachers from Montana who is traveling there with students to the state historical society and they are going to digitize all of the Chinese records and letters. They will email them to us and we will have some of our Mandarin staff, and parents and students who can read traditional characters do the translation. My little piece of the puzzle will be teaching about migration to the US from China and the Chinese experience there. I've been watching the Bill Moyers special on "Becoming American" and the Ken Burns' series "The West." The Chinese were seriously discriminated against; but the Western part of the trans-continental railroad would not have been built without them. (I am sure Swamp from the Pit would disagree!)
