Class tips:

  1. I highly recommend you purchase a three ring binder or have some sort of file/folder system for this course. Most of this class is not taught from a textbook. I will be printing and handing out a lot of materials and articles and expect you to be able to retrieve them to go over in class and use to study. I will post as much as possible online as well.
  2. For upcoming dates of tests/quizzes go to "assignments" "future assignments" Keep these dates in a personal planner (paper or digital)
