Number One Hundred Five

It's a stormin' today in Alabama. I'm in a good mood because my students participated really well in class and actually seemed to have a good time. *GASP* I made them read a short essay called "The Hijab" by a Canadian Islamic student, and they seemed to really get into discussing feminisim, race, and stereotypes. I think I'll have them read a Maya Angelou piece next because the class is predominantly African American, and because I want them to get a sampling (if possible) of authors from a wide range of religious, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds.
