Re-modified list of discussion leaders for the various topics: (If I misspelled any of your names, please let me know!)

Regarding the "reaction papers": Students who are leading discussion of an article need not turn in a reaction paper for that article.

February 9, 1996
In order to insure that we all read the assigned articles and participate in class discussion, I am establishing a new assignment: Students must write brief "reaction" papers for each article. The reaction paper should be up to one page long, and describe your reaction to the article. Your reaction could include discussion of implications not mentioned by the article's authors, or discussion of criticisms, or discussion of possible experiments or models that would help clarify issues in the article, or anything else that indicates a thoughtful reaction to the article. The reaction paper is due at the beginning of class on the day that the article is to be discussed. You will receive a "check" for turning in the reaction paper, and a "check plus" for an exceptionally thoughtful reaction. Not turning in reaction papers will reflect badly in your course grade. This applies to all articles from now on, starting with the Week 6 articles on similarity.
