Tasks – Due next Thursday, April 10

1) Good potluck recipe or purchase.

Find something interesting and bring it to the potluck. Avoid or clearly label any ingredients containing nuts or nut oils.

2) “Anchor book” and response paper for research project.

Look for and find one book that can best anchor and inform your research project for this quarter. It doesn’t have to (and probably should not) summarize your project or provide a direct blueprint for you to follow. In a typical “seminar paper” type written response to the book, articulate the jumping off point you’ll be using to approach your project.

Think about Wanted by Rachel Hall as an example. We used that book as a starting place in the program in Fall and Winter quarters, and it did two things for us. It gave us an overview of our timeline for the two quarters (it established our scope), and it provided key concepts that helped us organize our thinking and ideas (the outlaw, the police, and the vigilante viewer).

Bring your potluck dish, anchor book, and reading response paper to class with you on Thurs.

Signature Required for Spring Admission

Spring is the final quarter of a year-long program and is reserved for students ready for advanced work. We will have regular class meetings Mon, Thurs & Fri afternoons, plus additional meeting schedules and assignments in connection with “in-program” off-campus internships and independent study and research. To come into the program at this point, new students must have previous study in Constitutional Law, Legal History, or its equivalent (4 credits) and U.S. History or its equivalent (4 credits), as well as develop plans for internship or individual study activities that must begin in week one. As faculty, we will be happy to help qualified new students make such arrangements, and final admission to the program will depend on timely and complete arrangements for individual plans. If you are interested, please contact us for information and support. younga@evergreen.edu; unselj@evergreen.edu

Happy New Year and Welcome to Winter!
Printer Friendly Winter Schedule

Our first meeting of Winter Quarter is in room Sem 2 A1105 on Monday of week 1 at noon. If you are not registered for the program and have an interest in coming in, plan to be there from noon-1pm to talk with faculty about your interest.

We will discuss our first reading, Wanted by Rachel Hall, in Thursday Wk 1 reading seminar. New students also should read Peter Irons, People History of the Supreme Court, ch 1-18, to catch up with Fall program content over the next few weeks. No formal reading response paper necessary in this first week.

We have lots of reading this term. You might consider reserving time on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, when we have no organized classroom activities, to schedule and keep reading appointments with yourself.

Please keep in mind that we recommend quiet, contemplative reading over surfing through a book. This takes more time, and usually requires you to schedule more than one sitting to read. But we would rather you read even just part of the book carefully and thoughtfully, than rush through the whole thing superficially.

Mondays

12-1:15 history lecture – Sem 2 A1105
1:30-3 news notes panels – Sem 2 A1105
3-5pm team mtgs – The Underground

Thursdays

12-1:30 reading seminar – Sem 2 A2105
2-3:15 legal studies – Sem 2 E1105
3:30-5pm history lecture – Sem 2 E1105

Fridays

12-1:30 skills workshops – Sem 2 A2105
2-5pm film series – Sem 2 A1105

 

Complete porfolios are due in class Thursday, December 12. You can bring a late portfolio to your faculty office by a firm late-deadline of 3pm on Monday, December 16, but not after that.

If you give us a late or incomplete portfolio, we may or may not be able to provide your written evaluation or final award of credits before the end of Evals Week.

Please don’t use three-ring binders or other commercial plastic products. They are extra expense for students, unfriendly to the environment, and unhandy for faculty to carry.

We will bring large manila envelopes for everyone to use instead.

Complete portfolio contents

1. accurate index or table of contents
2. fall quarter self evaluation
3. academic statement – if this is your last quarter at Evergreen
4. Wiki article – and any drafts, notes, bibliographies, etc
5. reading response papers
