Following the successful "Anthropolgy Goes to High School" discussion forum (Nov. 28, 2007) and poster session (Nov. 30) at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association, I've set up this mechanism for gathering your links and vivid excerpts for teaching anthro to and with young people. I believe attached images and audio files will also be "live" when you send your posting via email. I'll write separately to those involved in the session with the access code so each person can freely add content to this website at http://k12anthrolinks.blogspot.com
