  People, Folks, Guys,

Reminder:  The quiz will be available today at 6:00 pm. As explained last week: it must be completed at one sitting (you cant stop and go back later to the test). The quiz covers the Great Divide and Institutional versus Interpersonal Racism, available via the Class Films List Page (Part A of Materials for Class Assignments Depository).


ANNOUNCEMENT No. 1
 
Posted 8/29/2021
People, Folks, Guys,

Welcome to your class home page. Please go through this announcement carefully.


1. Whenever you send me an e-mail it must be in a professional format; that is, it must begin with a proper opening and closure--otherwise you may not get a response. Please allow 24 hours minimum for a response. A proper opening begins with Dear and ends with Sincerely. Look at the format of the announcement you received. The subject heading MUST always indicate your course. (I am teaching about 130 students across three classes.)

2.  You are required to visit this page regularly (at least once a week). From this page you will be able to access everything related to this class. Why this arrangement? For copyright reasons--especially with regard to homework materials.

3. This page will be redesigned slightly at some point soon.

4. The class syllabus is available here.  Go through the syllabus carefully because it also tells you how to access the homework materials. Do NOT wait to do the homework until the last minute! You may not have enough time to study the material carefully; plus the internet is not always reliable.

6. I hope you will find this course as informative and enjoyable as the effort I will be putting into it.

Guys: If anybody knows the answer to the following question posed by the Dilbert Cartoonist, Scott Adams, let me know: "If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?"
