We just have to wait for this system to organize itself. This is such a brand new building. People at educational tech services are complaining that they were not consulted on what technology is used here. It is a unique set up. What I am going to open up now is the assignment and Corliss’s worksheet because there are a couple of things I want to help you get started with. What is still posted is the one I put up last time. It is the next to last version. I will tell you what has come in as some questions for that packet. When you submit your tables on the second of November, there are a few things that have to come with it. It is spelled out in the handout. First you have to resubmit tables one and two.

Then comes a paragraph that tells us what materials in the syllabus you are probably going to consult and use in the conduction of your analysis for paper two. I would urge you to write about race differences and that means pay attention to the material even if we have not gotten there yet. Look ahead or look in the reader for material about the historical formation of the different racial groups’ location in the US social order. If you are white and you are going to be writing about white people’s family dynamics or educational attainments, how is it that white people have had that set of patterns?
