Online Readings - FALL 2017



Simply click on the readings you wish to read. Use the learning objectives (Appendix D) and weekly previews (website) to guide your reading. You are only responsible for the text on each web page, not all of the links or advertisements included at the websites. If you do not have access to an internet connection at home, the readings are concise enough to do multiple reading assignments during a single visit to an on-campus computer facility. We recommend completing the on-line readings early in the week they are assigned, so weekends can be used to review that week's material and preview the following week.
