Please note the assignment in the syllabus this week. Rather than having you read all of the texts, I have assigned you each to ONE of the readings this week. Please make sure that you have read carefully and blogged in a very detailed way before you come to class on Monday night. You will be working in a small group to prepare teach the class about your text, and if you are not prepared, you will be unable to participate.
See you Monday at 5:00!
