Today’s Agenda Review The mid-term course evaluations Discuss some tweaks we’ve made Adjusted the reading load: lighter.  Simplifying slides, lecture  themes (more focused, scaling back some  ambitions, avoiding tangential commentary) Some changes to discussion format: shifting quiz review to lectures; opening  more time/”space” for general discussion.  Themes of the first half of course Reminder of how themes in last half of class build off the  “scaffolding” of the first half.  Reminder of the underlying objective of the course Preview  Theme of sections C and D of the course: characterizing and  critically analyzing individual components (programs and  policies) of the American Social Welfare State.
