Desperately Seeking Susan

Ok people, you are my internet posse so I am turning to you for help. I have two requests, and responses here or via email would be greatly appreciated:

1. I have to teach a review of chisquare, t-tests, correlation, and ANOVA on Tuesday. Any thoughts on how to make this interesting? Duchess, I am looking at you.

2. Mr. and I are the activities chairs for our ward and December 12th is our Christmas dinner. We were going to do an interactive nativity - kind of like a road show with the big parts assigned ahead, but others handed out at the door (I'm very big on audience participation). Well, the people who were going to write it and prep it have just backed out so I need ideas, pronto! Should I keep the interactive nativity and write it myself, or does anyone have any suggestions of something else? Muriel and Googamus, I am looking at you.

If I didn't call you out specifically, please don't feel like you have nothing to contribute here. I just know these folks have either a., taught this junk before, or b., been to this junk before.

Here's my contribution:

#1: Huh????

#2: Personally, I find synchronized swimming to be great entertainment.

As I am an expert on ward events, let me add that you should teach chi square to your lds friends. It will go over smashingly!

My advice (for real) on 1 is to use some communication data that would be interesting to your students and use that.

Why did you ask me? Just because I've been to this stuff before doesn't mean I pay attention. I say use the Charlie Brown Christmas script just so someone can say "And that's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown" at the end. I'll see what else I can come up with.
