In class yesterday I used David Bolton’s article—number 17—on Heinrich Schliemann. I copied it out for the students to read. I talked to it. We went through it with an eye on the main ideas and supporting details. We considered it.
When I asked afterwards, most of the class members were only mildly interested. They felt that the Heinrich maneuver would not work with Asian or Arabic languages.
On another topic, I considered seriously applying for a future part-time position. However, after, again, some consideration, I feel that I don’t buy into the systems and procedures being used.
