I am interested in learning more about the female role in the Civil War. I guess I just pictured a bunch of Scarlett O'hare types weeping and running about the plantation
Then you might be interested in BELLE BoYD of Martinsburg West Virginia who was the most notorious Confederate Spy even though West Virginia seceded from Virginia to become it's own state.

A brief portrait published in the New York Herald states: She was arrested and thrown in Old Capitol Prison. Romancers have given her undue repute saying she was beautiful and well educated, but she was merely a brusque, talkative woman. There is a certain dash and naivete in her manner and speech that might be called fascinating. Young Union officers, dazzled perhaps, took her out riding where she knew about the Union Camps and passed the information on to Confederacy. This RED Haired (lol) woman takes her arrest as a matter of course, and is smart, plucky, and as absurd as ever.

@Miss E Font.. With your pictorial of Scarlett O'hara running around the Plantation crying, and my prior post about the ladies of Richmond Virginia rioting over no bread; I am trying to find another section I had read where a socially prominent young lady from Boston (I believe) was complaining to the General Staff about the absence of young eligible Officer's to escort her and the other elites to certain high brow functions. She had stated that she had been to parties 4 nights in a row without a proper escort. Poor Dahling. LOL

It's being taught (to teachers) now that relationship building is the key to successfully instruct students of any age. I have to agree with what the egg head data implies about that.

Ethnic/special needs students sadly are a big factor in and often a stumbling block for current instructors completing the slow fade out of authoritarian type teaching styles and the coming in of the relationship building based teaching strategies in high schools.

Jr college and on...forget it, most of the instructors simply throw up a website and say have at it.... The egg heads need a shake up is what I am getting at.

LOL I'm sure the type relationship building you spoke of would have its good points in a Jr college online setting MissE and would be better than no apparent strategy(as they have now)but that would be hard to do over the net lol.

The kids fresh out of institutional based curriculums have to readjust and readjust fast to the online world. Sure they give them a taste of online learning in high school but no one has came up with a way to bridge the relationship gap insofar as online learning goes, as of yet.

Many students are just too dang poor to have much online experience at all.

I am working on an idea of how to fix that. I have a proposal drawn up but have been putting of presenting it until I work out some details. It's something like this forum right here..a little more structured but not much. I think it could work and in doing so help a lot of students in the future.

I have also been looking for the right big chief to present it to, like I have said before its getting harder and harder to find a human being in this world crowded with people.

I see a lot of positive relationship building and LEARNING going on here and I think if a site like this were to be transferred to a different context but remain open to individual thoughts, ideas, suggestions or just a way for them to let off some steam sometimes....while also getting a little social interaction in...I think a site like that would help today's online students- especially non traditional students- in a lot of ways. It would also help the instructors achieve what their primary goal should be: increased learning across the board.

There are so many positive uses for social media! It has its pitfalls and drawbacks; however, none of us would probably get to chat if it is wasn't for these formats. Sharing ideas, stories, thoughts with people in your town or half way around the world at the same time. Amazing

There is a great need for something along the lines of my little idea, I hope someone puts something like that into place soon....And it wouldn't hurt if they let me moderate it for a small fee LOL I think it would be very beneficial to online students.
The non traditional old fogy students would eat it up.
Lets develop it, and runn oft to Paris after we get rich. ;0

The online classes my daughter recently completed had certain times when the entire class "met" and listened to the instructor and verbally responded . Obviously this required high speed Internet and the only one available for our area at that time was Hugh's net .( added advantage was the wifi was available all through the house). Then there were times of technical difficulties. That's a royal pain . The computer would be just fine 5 minutes before class, then BAM!
She did fine with online classes but then it was hard to train household members to leave her alone for class. Also, this thread has been around for a couple of years and its mostly "old friends" now. With a short term class the camaraderie doesn't have time to be established. Wait! Just fake it!! After all its a computer and you can be whomever or whatever you want to be!!!

Scottish Highland games were interesting. I've heard enough of the bag pipes to last for a little while but i defiantly enjoyed them today! Enjoyed scotch eggs and then bangers and chips. Swords, clans, tartans and kilts. When the guys were tossing that 28 pound stone and they whirled around for momentum and their kilt swirled way out... Well, these guys wore undergarments... Yep. No doubt about that.

Yeah those WIMBA classes are on the cutting edge. What I propose is a BB (or whatever forum) system wide student based chat-site. The relationship building time prob is one of the things I'm hung up on, two phd's currently "in power" at separate campuses think its a great idea, or the preliminary proposal is rather.

It could help some little bit, not just in one class now, but all through the wonderful Jr. college newfangled online experience. They could warn one another what to classes to stay away from LOL in their online slang lingo that is so discouraged by most instructors.
And they could vent frustrations some little bit now and then, without getting into too much trouble.
A lot of the instructors are desensitized and a lot of the classes are beyond ridicules time and difficulty wise, I haven't seen the two together yet but if that happened I would sure pity the poor students.. The big wigs I approached thought enough of the idea to advise a notary mark be put on it to make sure credit for the idea falls where due.

As far as the charades here, harmless fun- I only know of one or two that have remained "themselves" on this particular thread. That's what topix is kind of about, a place for some to converse, for others to play, for some to troll, cause trouble, figure out who people are in various sock forms. Or any fun combination of those.
Good day Anne girl,BTW would you and wolf like to come to Paris with MissE and I? LMAO What about KEV! Maybe ugly gurl will show back up.
@Kev- If she does, she's all yours pal.

@Miss E Font.. a couple other women stories that you can also read more about via "Google" or your internet search facility.

Belle Brezing was Lexington's own high-class Victorian era Madame and it is reported that her activities were the basis for the character "Belle Watling" in Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With The Wind".

Also Pauline Cushman was a Union Spy and fledgling actress appearing in Louisville and was captured and scheduled to be hanged, but was rescued when Union troops showed up in Shelbyville Ky.

Wow! A woman talking about faking it....hehehe
U sound a tad mad too, I must have that dual effect on most females. Darn my luck.:)
I dont "fake it" in business deals or any other important real life deals. Lets keep things in perspective here, verification is easily obtainable in most any circumstance with a click or a call.

But now on here we play as we see fit, remember...you showed me them boobies and they were spectacular.. hahaha
I'll keep the two separated,(boobies websites take your pick) a pat on the back for intuitiveness may be in order, but other than that it was a lucky guess and I admit to a trick or two ON HERE to do my own verifying. What are the odds? Think about it! Providence?

So are we good, or what? Totally your call. If we aren't I'll bow out gracefully and stay off of here. Soon I'll be out of the "other place" too, it just isn't working out well, and I dont really need it anyways, I'm not going to waste time on something that I dont have to do and isn't any fun for me.
One good thing about this place is the fact that in a few days this whole conversation will be buried pages back.
A good thing about me is I know when to keep my mouth shut.

I bet your so cute when you're mad..How about a little kiss? Muahh.
Last word on the matter.
Now can we please be topix friends?
:)- you
:)- me
Happy- happy, how about it?
