Pretty Cool

When you can have a class of high schoolers use Google maps on their computers  to find where the Oyster Bay Roosevelts lived and the  Hyde Park Roosevelts, it is not like when I went to High School!
 The two Roosevelts who became Presidents  also were opposites :  Theodore and  Franklin.

Then discuss The Great Gatsby which takes place near Oyster Bay, NY in what is Great Neck ( near where I grew up between Oyster Bay and Great Neck)

Then read Wendell Berry's  Why I am not going buy  a Computer. 

All of it flowed from one discussion to another among all the ideas within!
