Review greensheet and website before class

Submit assignments online BEFORE class, so you will be prepared for class discussions

Go to the website regularly and post to Forums & Dialogue Chamber (Have you posted assignment #1 yet ? Have you responded to someone else’s assignment #1 ?)

Some assignments involve other students or staff, and require advance planning (ie. observation videotaping, final group project)
