We will treat the authors of the following books
as visiting speakers to our program. Giving yourself good time to read
and listen to the authors will be important. Much of the material that
will inform our understanding of how people learn will come from these
books. We’ll work hard together to become better, more analytical
readers. We will give considerable time to making sense of both the
content and implications of these readings.
