All those poor lost souls who never used the electronic forum! How frightful will be their eternity in Hell's torments.


One of the advantages of the Web is the ability to continue discussion outside of class. A class, ideally, is a learning community that fosters conversation beyond the limits of the classroom. This site will allow students to boost their participation, get much more out of the course's materials and, incidentally, improve participation grades.

In on-line discussions, follow these guidelines:

bulletNEVER FLAME: Show respect for others in your postings. You have a right to disagree with them but should respect their right to their opinions. Civility in public discourse requires a respect for others.
bulletJUDGE IDEAS NOT PERSONS: Give every contributor a fair hearing by reading what he or she writes regardless of what you may already think you know about the person.
bulletAGREE TO HAVING YOUR IDEAS PUBLISHED: You should understand that this is a public forum. By submitting material you are acknowledging that your statements may be read by people throughout the world.


REMEMBER: This forum is for advancing class discussion and for posting occasional assignments for everyone to read. If you want to communicate with me privately, contact me by E-Mail.
