I wrote a short Text/Work book for the class. It has about a tenth the amount of text as standard textbooks. It’s short, so I expect everyone to read each section before we address the topic in class and write all over it. This guide is concise and adequate. It’s also short enough to read, so please make a commitment to do that!
