Here you can find all of the readings for our class. Please bookmark the readings so that you can easily find them when you need them!

For each reading, in general, I ask that you write a response to the reading. On the Reading Response section of OpenLab, I will pose a series of questions that you can use as a guide or you can respond to something in the reading that made you think, wonder, feel inspired, etc. I ask that at least twice, preferably more, over the course of the semester, you respond to your classmates as well! Discussions deepen our thinking, enhance our learning and will make our classroom, even a virtual classroom, a better place!
