Other Required Readings

Some of the readings are available through links or are posted in a password protected page on our website. Print out PDFs at the beginning of the semester and assemble them into a folder, binder, or course packet. You can also put them in Drop Box and download them to iAnnotate on an iPad. If you use an electronic reader, you must have an application that allows you to annotate required readings.
