Beyond the required texts above and reserved media below, we also have readings posted on a course BlackBoard site. Please be sure to PRINT the readings and bring them to class. I discourage the use of laptops, e-readers or tablets in class. Better to NOT have the distraction in front of you. I also ask that you turn off your cell phones before class begins.
