Required Course Readings

The fall '22 course as of now will be taught on campus. (YES !!!) We are using the Maloy textbook (4th edition). The chapter readings will either be posted on myCourses and accessed through Perusall. This semester I am using Perusall gradebook OUTSIDE of myCourses ~ the algorithm caused surdents too much stress in edpt204 with the weekly fluctuations & updates. I will explain in the first class.
