Class started late, so we only got partway through my lecture. I’m doing one class lecture, one class primary sources, for each unit. This class meets 4 days per week. So I wound up finishing on the powerpoint slide that mentions the bad part of the Columbian Exchange.
The one that says “One Fifth of all Humanity Dies.”*
Twenty-seven students’ jaws dropped. Hee hee hee. Pay attention in class, kids. History counts.
