BHS Economics, Mr. Pahl

I am your teacher this semester, Mr. Pahl. Somehow I have picked up the nickname "P-Daddy".

That's me, on the left, with Dr.Zahi Hawass, the world's most famous archeologist.  We are standing between the paws of the Sphinx, one of the world's great mysteries.

Notice that I am dressed like Dr. Hawass.  Denim shirt. Felt hat with leather band.  I did this purposely. Trying to get close to him.  It paid off.  Ask me about that.

So I went exploring with Dr. Hawass, and then by myself. (see photo below...)  I have been inside every one of the major pyramids of Egypt.  I hope to write a book about that in my retirement.  So...

Do you want to go exploring with me this semester?  That is a serious question. To which I expect a serious answer. This is your first assignment in this course.

Send me an email, or a shared Google doc, in which you answer that simple question.: Do you want to go exploring with P-Daddy (my nickname) this semester?

Remember what it means to explore.  It means to go somewhere you have not gone before, and then try to learn things once you are there.  So I will ask this simple question, your first assignment, once more: Do you want to go exploring with P-Daddy this semester?

This assignment is due anytime during the first week we have class at Bartlett High School.

  • 2nd Assignment, due first week in course: take this survey, answer the questions honestly...
