"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


too retro?

I am thinking about showing this to my students this afternoon. These were so funny at the time and I think they'd like it, even if it's a bit dated. It's the course introduction and I need a fun way to talk about being respectful and cordial when discussing controversial issues.

UPDATE: I used it. They loooovvveed it. If I had known that 3 minutes of the Daily Show would have them eating out of my hand on the first day, I'd've started doing this years ago.

You have to show this to them! You'll be the coolest political science prof EVER if you do. They'll remember the talk because of this. Use it!!!!

VERY smart idea! My MIL is an English teacher and she is always doing things like this to engage her students.
