I promised myself that I wouldn't blog until I completely revised my manuscript, but I have something to tell you.
Actually, two things.
And one of them is about Mexico, so don't get distracted halfway through this.
First. Blogger has statistics now, including a map of readers. Below is the list of countries by # readers. (NATO and her allies?)
Second. This semester I'm giving my classes "pretests" to find out what they know (or think they know) before we cover it in class. Yesterday I asked the students in a pretest, "When was the Vietnam War?" and a student responded "1940-1950" then added, "(it was in Mexico)."
Have a nice day!
