My students apparently stayed up all night working on videos of themselves doing their old English recitations for extra credit. As far as I can tell, they didn't actually learn them any better (they're all reading them, not really reciting), but they got punchier and sillier.
I may have accidentally started a weird new religious movement, with me as the High Priest of Old English at Ilium.
Right now the videos are all on Facebook; I'll see if I can find a way to embed them here for y'all (2nd person plural) to look at.
Also, I'm going to be posting their actual recitations soon. They have to have the videos done by tomorrow, so I'll probably get them up this weekend. My best guess is that about 30 of you are out there following along with the class -- I would encourage you to do your own recitation, post it on YouTube (or some similar site) and send me the link so I can bring you fame, if not fortune.
