Week 1 update

I'll try to post notes here each Friday about what's coming up in the next week. In this case, we're continuing to do the reading for the first paper. On Tuesday, you have two pieces: "The City After Oil" and "Fantasy Cities." Both are on E-Reserve, but I posed a copy of Fantasy Cities also on the WebVista home page if you have trouble for some reason. We'll also talk about citing and including sources during that class time. Remember to post to the Reading Discussions topic before class time.

On Thursday, we'll read the last piece--chapter 2 of Amazing Grace by Jonathan Kozol. We'll also look at a sample paper during class and begin brainstorming for your essay.

Have a great weekend!
