    First Place to Check for What's Going On in Class Today

    Readings essential to coherent participation in class discussions, journals, written work are on the "Birdie" Calendar. We have tried to provide enough choice that you may select readings that interest you. We will not all read the same material. Therefore, be prepared in class to summarize briefly what you have read, in case others have not read that material, and be sure to specifically identify the readings in your written work. Be prepared to give either the page numbers of a text, or the URL of a site where we can find the material on which you base your comments.
