Website for the report Amita mentioned: "California's Future: In Your Hands" by Marc Baldassare, Public Policy Institute of California.
Whether you've taught University 100 ten times, never, or only once, you may have noticed how hard it is to get new first-year students to pay attention to--well, lots of things: election issues; world news; information about passing your class (or someone else's); and so on. Join Ronit as she shares ideas about breaking the spell of freshman self-absorption.
Coffee, tea, water, and light snacks provided. Feel free to bring your lunch!
