Preparing for class

Tomorrow is the first day of the American history classes I am teaching in Crookston at the university. I have taught this class two or three times before, so I have old notes and I am familiar with the basics. However, each time there is the challenge of tweaking things so the class goes better than before.

Crookston is the first "laptop university" in the world. That is, all students are required to have a laptop and many of the classes are based upon the internet and computers. Quizzes, tests, notes and research are done on the internet.
