Subject: [SACC-L] A New Anthropology Blog
Hi, most of you don't know me. I teach Anthropology at San Jacinto
Commmunity College on the southeast side of Houston. We have a
system-wide enrollment of almost 30,000 students. I attended the
University of Virginia and graduated with a B.A. in Anthropology and
went on to get my Ph.D. in Anthropology from Northwestern
University. Teaching at a Community College allowed me to raise my
daughter without the extra stress of a tenure decision.
Like most Community College instructors, my salary is not great and
my travel money even less so--just $850 a year is all I am allowed.
I haven't ever been able to justify the extra expense of annual
meetings--although, I have jealously read about the SACC ones.
I have been reading all your posts with great interest. I found the
Student Learning Outcomes posts particularly interesting, I have to
struggle with those on my own, being the only full-time
Anthropologist. In the interest of sharing my frustrations (and
joys?) in teaching the same survey courses over and over, I have
created a blog entitled "Teaching Anthropology". I have just now
posted it and am hoping that it will grow to a free-ranging
discussion area for all interested parties. I would like to be able
to discuss tips and issues with as many anthropology instructors as
possible. I have future posts on Distance Learning, Collaborative
learning, and new Technology planned. Please have a look and
contribute in any way you would like. All viewpoints and suggestions
are heartily welcome.
