Win one of five TCG codes today on WoW Insider {WoW}

May 19th 2009 9:55AM There once was an elf in the shade,
Who had moments ago AFK'd,
Then an orc, eyes aglitter,
threw a Dancing Emitter,
That elf caught one cool Party G.R.E.N.A.D.E.

Apr 14th 2008 10:50AM One of the things I've often thought of for myself is to treat neglected activities, i.e. exercise, keeping in touch with people, organizing my desk, etc. as areas for "leveling". Can't do 50 pushups? Create a level bar and chart progress day by day. Desk obnoxious? Have a "daily" quest to clean it and reward yourself. Same principle could be applied to students - and the concept of rewarding good behavior instead of punishing bad is a great technique as a teacher. (I'm a HS teacher myself, but in a girls' school so this sort of thing isn't as common... /cry).

Better yet, reward the "dailies" you have your students do, such as chores, homework, etc., but also include special rewards intermittently, a la Badges of Justice in the SSO satchels. Operant conditioning FTW!

Apr 14th 2008 10:36AM Seems to me the lore might present some direct parallels to Western mythology, from Beowulf to Greek Gods to any number of folk mythologies from various cultures. Noting the tie-ins, the divergences, and even creating "family trees" or genealogies based on both WoW and the "real" myths would be instructive and engaging. I know I'd like to understand the lore better, and this would be a good way to untangle it.

Inscriptions hidden in patch 2.4 {WoW}

Mar 5th 2008 11:15AM /agree /agree /agree! Shenanigans is seconded...

I was going to comment merely that it should read "Permanently inscribes your Fireball spells...", but Abraxxis's additional points are well taken. I smells teh bogus.
