For the first meeting of class on Monday, August 25, at 9:00 a.m. in Room 201, please read pages 1-4 of the Course Materials and the paperback book, The Buffalo Creek Disaster by Gerald Stern, in its entirety. The Course Materials are available in the Faculty Support Center.
Please note that the recommended books for this class in the bookstore are not required. Please do not buy any of them until after the first meeting of the class. Laptops may not be used during the class, and so, please do not bring one with you to the class this semester. You will need the Turning Point Response Card (i.e., the “clicker”) for the class. Be sure to bring it to class on Monday, August 25.
For the August 26 class, please read pages 1-29 in our text, Driesen, Adler and Engel’s Environmental Law: A Conceptual and Pragmatic Approach, Second Edition.
Please bring your clicker to class.
Note that I have assigned the print version of the book. Though a digital version is available from the publisher, you will most likely want to bring a physical copy of the book to the final exam, which is partial open book.
