Semester topics

Dear students,
Thank you for coming to class today, and thank you for accessing the blog. Next week, we will use the textbook and also choose presentation topics. We will probably have time to do four out of six topics in one semester. The topics are: communication, education, social issues, environment, technology, and values. Ideally, I would like both of my presentation classes to choose the same four topics, as one blog is shared by two classes.
See you next week,
Chris Elvin
