Change in Weekly Reading Assignments: Two colleagues, Andrea Gullickson and Walter Grodzick have asked to have their program visit ours for some foundational body work. Walter’s program will visit Tuesday morning, and Andrea’s program will visit Thursday morning. Thus I’ve moved all Reading Assignments forward one week.
