Cyber-Assignment, Reading Log for Half the Sky

Today we had a short discussion on Half the Sky. Some students hadn't read Chapter 1, so they were not able to participate. Homework is to read chapters 2-3 for Monday and to complete the templates for the essay Sentence Punctuation.

If students miss class, call me. If a student doesn't have the textbook, SPHE is on reserve in the library. Do your homework at the college or make photo copies. If a student is unclear on an assignment ask questions in class.

SPHE is not hard, but it is labor intensive. We started the film, Jazz Mama, on Monday, but hard some technical difficulties. I have an interview to show students with Nicholas Kristof, co-author of Half the Sky. It was taped at the International Women's History Museum in San Francisco last year.

On Monday we spent significant time working on exercises in SPHE.
