    Do you think that each of the presenters, from each section would like to have their materials posted. This would allow for the further sharing of ideas between the groups for each topic posted? If so I will send you mine for ‘mastery’.

      I have created a page for each one of the topics we are covering this semester. You can add any material you want to share. I posted mine as PDF with a link to it.
