    Well, thank you.

    I don't know if I deserve that, but it is appreciated. I am on quite a different tack with my students right now. I don't know where it will go. In the meantime, you might be interested to watch their website develop.

    You will find it at <humanitynotes.webs.com>. It is constantly surprising me. Today, before I taught one of my classes, I looked and saw that the notes for my class were already online because I had taught it that morning.

    My students are not all angels, and I have to deal with the unruly in the midst of the excitement. But, I suppose, that is the way it always is -- at least in a public school.

    Today I had to shut down competitive sentence diagramming [hf. CSD] completely in one class because it was too excited.

    Yeah, about the notes that were already online, Josh and I were working on the site in 2nd period (Mrs. Vent's class) and 5th period (Mrs. Guyer). Right now, I am trying to learn or get a CSS (CSS is like html) template for the site. I posted a question on Yahoo Answers for someone to find a good template for me but I don't know if anyone will reply to the question.

    Once again, you are beyond me.

    Maybe someone on THIS forum knows what you mean and can help.

    I hope someone can help somewhere in the world. If not, there is a site where I can download a template or I can just use the one we have right now.

    The notes are fine Rummel. Congratulations!

    I just would like to state I don't really grasp why math is not considered
    'humanities' despite the fact that they are defined as the study of
    human expression
    (Introduction: Introduction - Notes for Humanities/Language).
    I know this is a little off topic but I couldn't move on without saying it.

    Dane,
    I understand what you mean. I very excited about sentence diagramming, even though I not sure if I'm very good at it. Sometimes when I'm bored, I will find myself diagramming sentences on random pieces of paper. Even on the back of my report card... Bad idea Now I always make sure to look on the back of papers before I write on them.

    Again, Thanks!

    I too think it is pretty amazing. The kids are pretty excited about it. If you have any suggestions, pass them on.

    The kids are thinking about putting a "gloss" around the basic text.

    Maybe you would want to join the site. That would get them excited!

    I know this is a little off topic but I couldn't move on without saying it.

    I explain to the kids that 2+2 = 4 we think of as being true whether humans think so or not. Math and so much of science I tell them could be considered the study of God's expression (if one believes in God). This is the kind of discussion that would go well in a gloss.

    (Later, I explain to the kids that 1+1 = 3. That gets them a little excited.)
