Midterm survey, classes next week, and April events

Now it’s your turn to evaluate the class. Please take the midterm survey sometime before Friday, April 5. It should take about 10-15 minutes of your time. On Tuesday, April 2 we will finalize our research groups for the last projects of the semester: the outline, annotated bibliography, and podcast. Thursday, April 4 will be devoted to synthesizing group members’ individual questions from the midterms into a single idea and developing the outline.
