Posting to the Forum

Each student will prepare some discussion questions or provocation points for certain class sessions based on the readings or on other sources that you find. Each person will be responsible for two posts to the forum during the semester. If students wish to trade assigned sessions, they can do so among themselves, just update this page so that it is clear who is responsible for each week.

Students should also be prepared to discuss these topics in class. These posts should be completed by 9am of the day the class meets.
