Each year around this time, I try to contact the incoming co-presidents — meaning for First Years in the class of 2008 — of the JA’s about my thoughts on teaching first years The Mountains. Does anyone know who they are? I still need to revise my letter on this topic in light of the experiences of the last couple of years. Also, am I correct in thinking that, just as it was 20 years ago, very few students know the words?
