Understanding that most of you are here to fulfill a general education requirement :-) what is one thing that you hope to gain from your time in this course? More confidence speaking in class? More refined writing skills? More information about American history? A better understanding of the current political climate/debates? A new study group? A place to sit with free wifi that is out of the rain? Besides the end goal of a degree, what do you want out of your experience in this course?
In the comments below, write your goal. We'll encourage each other throughout the semester and we'll check in at the end of the course to see how much progress we made towards our goals.
This post will be available for comments until Thursday, September 3.
