Unformatted text preview: You will be responsible for 5 reviews at 20 points each. You are required to complete 3 reviews prior to the midterm exam and the remaining 2 prior to the final exam. I would prefer that you e-mail the reviews, but I will accept hard copies. Please be aware that I may select 1 or more of these for weekly class discussion. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/12/27/AR2007122701942.html http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/25/science/earth/25threefifty.html?ref=science http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33445376/ns/politics-health_care_reform/ http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/10/25/republicans-hold-firm-public-option-resistance/ http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-hate-crimes22-2009oct23,0,7802389.story http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/10/22/hate.crimes/index.html...
