This outline explains in full details, in about 7 pages, the description of the course, the recommended materials to be used in the discussions, course objectives, course outcomes, course policies, assessment methods and a calendar of classes with dates on exams and due assignments.
There is no need to print the outline because students can look at it any time they want at home or in class.
This is a collection of books and articles most of them are online materials. Some are not online but must be bought at the book stores (Students tend to make copies at the coping places because it is cheaper). But no student can avoid the blame if he/she cannot get the materials.
The course is divided into topics not chapters in books. Even if a chapter is assigned, that does not mean discussion will be limited to the chapter. Students are encouraged to collect materials from any website that is possible for access.

Important books for reading
students are told to follow the policies of the teacher in running the course in relation to absence, late submission of homework, plagiarism, submitting the assignments on the given time and preparing their presentations.
This is a very important part of the course. The practice is to assign one topic for each student to read well and prepare a presentation to lead the discussion in class with the supervision of the teacher who usually stops at every point for clarification and making sure that the students understand the point bringing examples from experience.
The student has also to upload his presentation to the forum for all students to see before they come to class.
This step is very important because it guarantees that every student has read the material before coming to class. This happens as it is required for each student to write a response to the reading of the topic commenting on things that he likes or understands and things that he cannot understand. Everyone will have to write at least two questions about the materials. The response and the questions will have to be posted for everyone to see on the forum
6. The news forum for the teacher
Any time the teacher finds something to be announced for students, he can post it right away and students are supposed to look at it and do what is required.
There is no need for calling student on their phones and ask them to meet so that you can announce what the teacher wants for them. This is a great advantage for both teachers and students.
