Everything is below

These questions are meant to guide your reading. They are not an exhaustive list. You must turn these in at the end of the class for which the reading is assigned. There are less questions as we proceed through the text. This is because you are likely going to become better readers, but also because the answers become more complex. These questions will be useful for helping create discussion, and also exam questions. This assignment needs to be turned in each week according to the course outline. No, you may not turn these in late, or ahead of time.
