Based on our class discussion Monday and the questions that you all turned in, I think we need to spend a lot more time on Chapter 18, as well as talking about media responsibility, effects, and race issues. Please remember to bring your books to class on Wednesday so that when I refer to a page you can flip to it.
I don’t buy into the concept that 1) we blame the media for everything, 2) that nothing should be done about it, 3) that some of you who don’t speak don’t have opinions (you know who you are-and you have good questions!) We’ll be working through some of the questions that got turned in that are really good. Others of you should be concerned: your question are not very good, not a reflection of the reading and you’re not participating in class. I believe you know who you are as well.
So while there’s no formal assignment, I expect you to bring your books and be familiar enough with Chapter 18 to answer the questions we’ll be going over.
