Syllabus

9 Dec

I am currently putting together the syllabus.  It will be ready by the first day of class.  However, if you’re thinking about what books to purchase, the reading list is below.  I have noted which books are available as open access.  You will note that you will not have to purchase many books for this course if you choose not to.  Also note while you are considering making your purchases that we will not reading the entirety of all of these books, and you may find it more convenient and cost effective to use the online versions.  Since you will have your computers with you in class every day and have access to the wireless network, you should be able to use them similarly to the print version.
