Building Block Activities will vary from week to week but are designed to give you the opportunity to learn more about the topics we discuss in class. These activities may involve reading a scholarly article, reading a blog post, listening to a portion of a podcast, watching a short video, and so on, all related to a specific topic that connects to course content. All of these materials will be posted and/or linked below. After working through these materials, you’ll need to submit a brief paper demonstrating what you’ve learned and reflecting on the materials.
