Class time will not be used exclusively in formal exposition of course material by the instructor – the typical lecture. Group work, full class discussion, and media presentations will take place in “lectures.” Students should reflect regularly on the linkages among in-class activities, the learning goals of the class, and the content of readings in the syllabus. Although the framing conversation bythe instructor will always make these connections clear, please visit office hours to resolve any confusion.Reading assignmentsReading LogsResearch tasks – Observations, Interviews, and Field ReportsMedia (audio/video, tables and charts, still images)Free writesPowerPoints presentationsSupplementary postings from the news media These components complement and reinforce one another.
