YOUR HOMEWORK HAS ALSO CHANGED FOR THIS WEEK:
in ADDITION to the chapter summary, your job is to SELECT 4 questions for this chapter. For each question:
- include the question
- list what the goals of the question are -- what is it getting at
- what the students should do to solve the question
- why this is a good question -- why it reaches these goals.
Please be going to fieldsite / sending in notes... soon I will ask for a project description.
