Welcome to the 21st-century classroom

I’ve finally succumbed to the desire to start a blog. This summer class I’m taking is just too incredible not to share with the world. I present to you two highlights from the past two weeks:

 

 

Prof: “What about Weber? Can we call Weber a reductionist?”

The classroom is dead silent. The girl next to me has been on her laptop for the entire class, doing everything except taking notes. She Googles, “is weber a reductionist?”

 

 

Prof: “So, what was the Civil War about?”

[15 seconds of total silence]

Blonde: “Wasn’t it about the North and South…… slaves…..?”
