Unformatted text preview: READINGS PURPOSE & PHILOSOPHY: The readings for Geography of Texas are numerous and diverse so a multitude of perspectives and ideas can be engaged. My intent is for students to read from different authors and types of writing. Numerous readings are placed at the reserve desk in the library annex. This allows for electronic reserve for many articles and chapters, but some others had to be in the form of photocopies. READING SCHEDULE: The reading schedule (below) is only a guideline for you. The readings are listed in their approximate order and close to the lecture topics. Some students learn better by reading before/after the related lecture, therefore, plan accordingly to your time schedule and personal learning strategy. READING LOCATIONS: Where to fnd the Readings. TEXTBOOK = ProutGeography oF Texas Packet = Copy Corner photocopy E-Reserve = online access via library website. E-learning = WebCT = online documents via university s e-learning website.
