As always when preparing a book, I had more material for Vex, Hex, Smash, Smooch than would fit between the covers. I will sprinkle some of my outtakes in my blog and in articles throughout the site, but here are links to things specifically mentioned in the text. And, for the true geeks in the crowd, here’s a link to my complete bibliography.
Supplemental material for teachers eager to use Vex, Hex, Smash, Smooch in the classroom. (There are also lesson plans corresponding to Sin and Syntax.)
Chapter Two/Up! Cup! Tadatz!
The sign that writer Darrelyn Saloom found in an antique store in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Chapter Five/I Came, I Saw, I Conquered
The whole truth about Sojourner Truth’s words.
Chapter Six/Verb Tenses
From James Wilson Bright’s An Anglo-Saxon Reader, first published in 1891, to the Bay Area Slang Web site, every source I consulted during the writing of the book is here, in the complete bibliography.
Here, again, is supplemental material for teachers.
