      I have only received interest from one person. PLEASE let me know ASAP

      Ann, Thanks for reminding me to get this together!



      SACCers, Anyone interested in presenting at the AAA in San Francisco in
      the fall? I will be happy to submit the info to AAA. I don't think
      I'll be able to attend the meetings, though. It all has to be submitted
      by March 15.



      The suggested title is: "Borders and Barriers are Teaching
      Opportunities" the borders and barriers
      we face when it comes to socioeconomic status and educational
      preparedness of our students? (Thanks, Nikki!)



      The dates are November 14-18, 2012



      Let me know!



      Cheers!

      Dianne

        Regarding students' perspective, we seem to be in the Age of Entitlement.

        On my wall of wonder in my office, I taped the article from 1968 of AIM leaders, Means and Vernon Betancourt, I believe, arriving in Italy, declaring at the docks that they "discovered" Italy! Of course, students would have to actually know something about history and the concepts involved to enjoy that article, and after 1990, there were few who did.

        Here's one copy of that Flip Wilson Clip:
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcKT2X2eRrc

        The particular clip is here (starts at about 5:06 into the routine):
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=VcKT2X2eRrc#t=307s

        And, yes, it sounds like Geraldine.

        And there is an old Hagar the Horrible in which some improbably dressed
        Americans (eagle war bonnets, buckskin jumpers and pants) land on
        Hagar's shore and "discover" Europe, naming the new land "Indiana".

        I can't find that right now, but I am sure it is collected somewhere.
