Class, just a reminder that in addition to the course readings for Tuesday, I'd like you to familiarize yourself with the Millennium Development Goals by exploring the website and checking on the progress made toward each goal.
Who made the goals, and how much time do we have left to achieve them? Is the world on track to meet these goals? Why do we care about these goals in this course?
This reading is not required, but you might be particularly interested in reading the report on teaching and learning, which found that 75% of the teachers in the world are not formally trained in education.
Tuesday is a tech day! Also, remember that we have readings #5 & 7, and that Tuesday will be the first journal check. Plan to leave your journal with us before you leave class on Tuesday!
Finally, remember that Step 1 for your "This I Believe" essay is due on Thursday - either a hard copy turned in during class, or uploaded into the dropbox on ANGEL.
