SC361 Family and Work: Schedule of Presentations


You are responsible for constructing a reading list (in consultation with me), reviewing the literature, and preparing a 15-minute presentation to be delivered in class. Please see some tips for reviewing the literature and some advice on preparing a presentation. You will also read other studentsí weekly blogs for that week, prepare questions for in-class discussion, and come prepared to co-lead the discussion with me. Your reading list will be due one week before the class meeting (although you are welcome to submit drafts of the list and consult with me earlier); you will send your discussion questions to me by 9 pm on Monday preceding your presentation.
