I mentioned my Jane Austen idea to a colleague and it turns out that someone else is doing something very similar at another school. This, of course, piqued my interest, and what started out as a random though may find itself become a full blown, legitimate event. I may just go ahead and map out…
As expected, just when things started looking pretty good for me, something bad had to come along.
Okay, this is my last (for the time being) Jane Austen themed post. Remember, I’m not that much of a fan, but the era is one of my favorites, and given my recent posts on education, are a couple of additional sites to which I wanted to give a shout out.
Previously, I mentioned my unorthodox idea about teaching late 18th/early 19th century Euro-American history via a Jane Austen-themed event. I even posted a link for late 18th/early 19th century foodstuff. Well, here’s another – the blog that accompanies those films.
While this is only tangentially related to my Jane Austen posts, I thought that it’d be a cool addition, especially for those who are really into Ms. Austen’s world…
With my recent discussion on Jane Austen, I thought that it might be appropriate for me to list the materials that I would use in preparing the event.
Just had the strangest idea yet. (And if you knew just a tenth of what I come up with on a good day, then you’d understand the profound nature of that statement.)
