(one and a half)
So we're one and a half years in. That means less than 8 months to go.
In so many ways it seems like much longer. And on the other hand it's really flown by.
This past week my students debated whether or not women should work (as you read in Larry's post, below). There were some interesting opinions, and many interesting arguments. They did a great job with the argument part, though the "supporting your opinion with facts or statistics" is still a tough one. Also, I specifically warned against generalizing "all people..." or "everyone," but it happened a lot anyway. Hey, I can't undo a lifetime of generalizing in a few months.
But I'm trying. =)
