In class, we discussed what Castille is at length. Looked at pictures, analyzed the history, and then went over the entire thing.

Last night, in anticipation of today’s mini-quiz, a student wrote me an email asking, “I’m sorry, what’s Castille again?”

And here I thought this was the Google generation.

Seriously, doesn’t it take less time just to Google the word than write an email and sit there waiting for a response?

I might be a bad teacher, but I didn’t write back.

    1. “The land of Castles”. The Christian part of Spain that imposed its language (Castilian, which today is called “Spanish”), its culture and its interpretation of history on the rest of the Iberian peninsula.
