    On Life Without Parole

    I just wanted to email you to let you know . . .that I am very excited about the class. I started reading the book Life Without Parole a few weeks ago and couldn't put it down. I am finding it very interesting and intriguing. Well I look forward to the rest of the semester in your class. See you soon.

    amanda -- great!

    On Alfie Kohn's Beyond Discipline

    Alphie Kohn's idea about punishing someone creates temporary compliance i feel is true. My brother has been in and out of jail for the last five years, and that is how he is. He will be in there for a month or two and get out and be fine for a couple weeks, and then he is back to the same old stuff.

    bill -- you might want to read Kohn's book as a creative measure. also, if incarcerating an individual doesn't work, then why do we keep doing it?

    On "Dear Habemas" and Answerability

    I was exploring Dear Habermas and read Answerability and Social Change: a counter-counter-revolution. I found it interesting how the author had a much different view of the counter versus the view a black person from that day and time probably had. It wasn't until later that the author realized that. It made me think of the Postmodern View which we are currently reading about in Research Methods.

    romona -- a good idea to make connections between this class and your other classes.

    On musical chairs

    I HAVE BEEN IN CLASS WHERE BEFORE WE INTRODUCE OURSELVES AROUND THE ROOM. I THINK THE MUSICAL CHAIRS WAS A LOT MORE EFFECTTIVE AT BREAKING THE ICE, AND IT WAS FUN AS WELL.

    andrea -- glad you liked musical chairs today. i'll have to think of a different way of doing introductions in class for friday.

Since it was fun it made time go buy faster and made the learning expeirence much easier to remember latter on.. thanks,see ya on friday

    beau -- learning should always be fun!

    On musical chairs

    Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed class today. At first I was a bit apprehensive about playing musical chairs, but it turned out to be fun, entertaining, and an interesting way to relate back to race, crime and law.

    marissa -- why apprehensive at first? what made it fun for you?

    On the silly name game

    Just wanted to stop and say I thought the name game was a great idea.. Even though it took up some time, it was definitaly worth doing.. It helped everyone become more aquanted and gave a few good laughs around the way.. It also made people feel more confortable around each other and that is what is needed to have a good discussion latter on in class..

    beau -- it took longer than i had planned but i guess that's worth it. given the subject matter of this course, i think this kind of exercise will help.

    On the silly name game

    I thought playing the memory name game was a good way to get to know one another. It followed the C's of Cooperation,Consistency, and Communication. I know people very well now, and I have even had people in classes before that I never knew there name and now I do. I also helped explain our journals to two classmates Bo and Walter.

    katie -- yes, the 5Cs do apply here!

    chassidy -- i'm glad you liked it. learning should be fun!

    On the silly name game

    I really enjoyed class today, it was a fun way to learn who everyone is in class. It was easier to remember everyone then I thought.

    andrea -- good! i'm glad you liked it.

    On the silly name game

    I just wanted to convey how much I enjoyed playing the name game today. I have never been great with names but by using food association maybe it will make it easier for me to remember everyone. I'm only afraid I'll remember only the food and not the name!!! LOL I'm looking forward to next week to see how good our memories are.

    mona -- yes, the thought occurred to me, too -- that i would remember the food a person likes rather than his/her name!

    On the silly name game

    I just wanted to let you know I thought the name game we did in class was a creative way to get people to know each other.It is a fun way to learn names. I think it works well to break the ice and it helps to get to know the people you will be working with.

    andrea -- yes, it was fun and the sooner we all know each other, the better our class discussions will be.

    On the silly name game

    i REALLY enjoyed class today. at first, the name game seemed kinda strange, but once we got into it, i was talkin' to samantha next to me, and we agreed that we honestly now know every single person's name in that class room. i can't say that for any other class i have. definitely creative, and very enjoyable.

    nick -- great! now that we all know each other's name, it also means that we will all know who missed class on friday!

    On the silly name game

    the name game was fun today, we were talking about having you do it with your eyes closed!

    kyle -- interesting -- how would that work exactly?
