Welcome 2nd Semester Class

Welcome to Critical & Creative Thinking.  On this blog you will find assignment information and other ‘stuff’.  There will also be links posted on my Critical Thinking webpage.

For example, you must have the syllabus contact/contract information filled in and returned by Friday, 1/25/08.

Also, remember to sign up at nicenet.org and complete the assignment there.  You will have weekly assignments at nicenet.org, so be sure to keep up with them!  I will not continually post reminders about those, since they are repeated weekly.
