Monday, Sept. 28   ****NO CLASS***

There is no student-led seminar this first week.

 Tuesday, Sept 29 – noon-3:00 in COM 110.


Before coming to the first class, please read:

You may find the Illich and Berry pieces difficult but just stick with them; do the best you can.  During the first week the faculty will show you how each of us approached and grappled with these texts.  You will, at the very least, see that there is not a single or a correct way to understand them.  Make of them what you can and what you will.

Tuesday, Sept 29 – 3:00-5:00 in COM 308, 308B, 308E

Seminar – specific room assignments to be given in class

Due:   The Connect, Extend Challenge assignment  which was given in the Welcome Letter for enrolled and waitlisted students.  As you read each text, mark your margins with a pen in the following way: a.  A check mark indicating where the ideas and information presented CONNECTED to what you already know b.  An “E” beside new ideas that EXTENDED or pushed your thinking in new directions, and c. A “?” next to what is still CHALLENGING or confusing for you to get your mind around.  Bring these marked up texts to class on Tuesday. All three of them.

Wednesday, Sept. 30 – 9:00 – 1:00 COM 110

DUE:   Bring six copies of the self-evaluation you wrote in class yesterday  (and fixed up overnight) to read aloud.
