Perspectives, Spring 2018

This is the website for students in STEM-Ed 220. Our syllabus for the course can be found here.  Below are links to information you will need for each week; it will be populated with more information throughout the semester. To view the links (most of which are stored on Google Drive) and to submit the homework you will need to be logged in to your Boise State account. Typically we will have a longer reading on the weekends, along with two written assignments, and a shorter homework assigned on Monday nights. Most of our readings we will do collaboratively in Perusall (if not, I will link the reading below). You should create an account on Perusall and add: ATKINS-ELLIOTT-8442 as your access code for this course.
