The Tragically Hip coming to Burlington

I’m tempted to require my students to attend….

Oct. 20th will see the Tragically Hip play Memorial Auditorium in Burlington. I can’t wait!

One option is to require attendance; others might be to
– host a debate about the requirement,
– allow attendance to be the basis of a component of the grade, e.g. as in a paper, a documented field observation
– allow virtual attendance (why attend a ball game when you can watch it on TV, or watch it on a VCR),
– allow surrogate attendance (with one group of students forming a “not so tragically hip” clone grouo, another group of students being groupies, … a fractal representation of the experience …
– more suggestions welcome …
