For each of weeks 3 through 9, you should complete by class time a journal entry of 250 to 500 words. You should discuss two items from newspapers, radio, television, public life (such as a public meeting), personal experience or a class activity (during weeks when they are held).
Journals will be collected during class in weeks 5 and 9. Assessment will be based half on the entry for a week chosen randomly from 3 through 5 and half on the entry for a week chosen randomly from 6 through 9.
