If my office hours are not convenient, I will be glad to make an appointment with you.

Teaching is my responsibility. But learning is your responsibility. This means that it is your responsibility to ask if there is something you don't understand or if you have any concerns. I am easily reachable in any of the following ways:
* during my office hours
* by appointment outside my office hours
* via phone
* via email

No office hours on Wednesday, April 21. I will be attending student presentations in the Spring Symposium on Undergraduate Research & Creativity

Advice for Giving Good Presentations

There will be a collection of online readings which the students can print and put in a 3-ring binder.
See Class Schedule for these readings.

There is a textbook for this class, but it is optional. Many class lectures will (generally) come from the three textbooks shown below. If you would like to have your own copy of any of these books, please let me know and I will ask the Bookstore to order one for you. These three books have also been placed on reserve at the UNCA library.
