• Assignment

    Here you will find information about the small group assignment.  The assignment is described on the course syllabus.  If you have questions about what is required, please email me.

    You need to be in groups of 2 or 3 at maximum.  If you haven’t done that yet, and you did not get a chance to hook up with anyone during the first set of classes, I can try to coordinate groups electronically.  Please send me an email indicating that you need a partner, and I will connect people.  You should be organize the work via email, phone, skype, etc, if not in person.

    I will list the articles that have been submitted to me on this post.  We want to try and avoid multiple appearances of the same article, so start looking now if you have not already.
