Recommended Reading Ahead:

I put these up for your reading pleasure. Do try to read ahead because we are all pressed for time during the semester. Be sure to check previous weeks, too. I'm still working at expanding the index. There's a template up for each class this Spring, and now I'm trying to fill them in. It's quite a job, and I'm sure it won't be perfect, but I think you'll like it. jeanne

Racist Gore, Racist Democratic Party by Steve Rosenthal. Rosenthal's take on the recent handling of elections. Based on O brother, where art thou?, an article by an up and coming young black writer, Tamala Edwards. Those of you who were sharing Devyn Johnson's disillusionment over your vote not counting, might want to take a look at Wiliam Julius Wilson's argument, as Rosenthal summarizes it. Compare the brief summary at the connection, and at University of California Press and Robert Jaquay's review. We'll discuss the dilemma of facing divergent views like this on the extent to which "racism" and "coalition" conflict and merge. Be sure to take into consideration Fellman's paradigm shift from adversarialism to mutuality. Online.

NY Times high stakes [testing] article by Peter Farruggio. PSN Important because "high stakes" testing is the most possible adversarial way of punishing those who do not learn, whether we have taught them or not. Be sure to link to the article itself, NY Times, "Student Failure Causes States to Retool Testing Programs," by Jacques Steinberg, December 22, 2000. And be sure to read both sides. I'll hunt for conservative responses. Also consider interpreting this from Edward Said's postcolonial approach that the arrogance of dominance permeates the whole culture of the West. Online.
