Thanks to those who provided input on the garbage-ology project I
suggested. I have taken your ideas and filed them with the lesson, so I
can apply some of your suggestions next fall.
Thanks to Maggie, I did read through the "Garbage Project" (the work of
William Rathje at U of Arizona) and found it to be quite interesting.
Marcia provided some information on the "New Evidence on Trajen's Forum"
(an e-mail dated May 2). I attached this for reading and to peak the
interest of my students as part of the "Evidence Kit Analysis".
Additionally, I modified the questions to reflect your input and
suggestions. Students will be turning in their "Evidence Kit Analysis"
tomorrow. I will summarize their findings and get out their ideas this
