I. Introductions: Four-Question Interview (followed by the Name Game)
Please do this in writing to be collected at the end of class. Alternatively, you can also shoot me an email with your answers using your cell, laptop, etc to firstname.lastname@example.org.
II. Name Game
The name game is an activity that we will do for the beginning of the semester. At the start of each class, 3-4 people will have to go around the room and say everyone's name. This activity is meant to form community. This is a class where you need to know everyone's names and interact with them significantly. This is something to be taken seriously---hence, we start this course by making sure we know everyone's names! In the minutes before class starts, push yourself to ask your colleagues their names, interests, majors... and then, after that, holla atcha peoples in the room!
Welcome to the First Day of Class! Today, we review the syllabus and get to know one another. We will begin some early conversations about AAR and get outselves ready to do some work this semester.
