GUEST,vixen @ Work Hey Teach'! (Do you use the Digital Tradition?) (21) RE: Hey Teach'! 09 Apr 03

Dear Dick--

I teach "College Composition" and "Application Software" as adjunct faculty at Three Rivers community College. I also "advise" the Student Performing Arts Guild. In these capacities, I have found the DT to be very useful in teaching internet research, musicology, and historical perspective. My students have used the DT for their own lyrics searches, and several of them have told me they continue to use it. I've also referred several of my friends and family to the resources of the DT, as well as several of my colleagues in education. Personally, I use it extensively for my own research on tunes and songs I hear, enjoy, or perform.

These things are always difficult to quantify, since teaching is, as they say, a profession that touches infinity, but the DT is definitely a significant educational resource, both in and out of the classroom.

With much gratitude to its creators and maintainers, I remain, faithfully,

Vicki Baker (aka Vixen)
