Looking at the Urban Legends site from yesterday choose one of the legends. (Choose a different one from yesterday) Create a list of distinguishing details in the legend:
- Who is involved?
- Where does it take place?
- What happens? What is the event that is meant to scare or teach?
- What is the moral or caution?
Using an online search engine search for two other versions of the legend and compare these distinguishing characteristics.
What changes? What stays the same? Why do you think some of the details change? Which version is most convincing?

Welcome! I want to welcome you to Anthropology and the 2014-2015 school year. I am very excited to start this school year with you. Anthropology is a broad subject area to study. In this course we will focus on Anthropology & Folklore. Folklore plays an important role in society. It is the traditional beliefs, customs, and stories of a community.
Has been teaching in the City School District of Albany for twelve years.
