Hi all!

I am going - and for a full year!! I will be a Fulbright Exchange Teacher in
the UK. A complete switch with my English partner, Judith Rowland + teaching
positions and homes!! What fun -- and she and I will team teach a
comparative politics USA/UK course using daily e-mail and some video
conferencing.

I'll keep you all posted with links and lessons we used. Ta!

Ann Cohen
