    I went to the dear habermas web site today and found the dear habermas questions. I did have a question about one of the questions though, i couldnt figure out why some recommendations were called "dog" letters. I looked fairly thoroughly through the web site, so i was wondering if you could give me a pointer. I also wanted to comment on the site, i thought it was very informative and had a variety of information on it. I read the comments by the people in the media class and i think their advice will help alot.

    amber -- you need to read this link, Infamous Grades and Letters of Recomendation . your reaction to the Dear Habermas site is helpful. thanks!

    On homework for first two weeks

    Here are some suggestions that I thought would help integrate new students into this learning style..

    1. Partner up new students with old students.

    2. Make Habermas workshop at 2 different times so that more students can come.

    3. Make old students bring in their old binders for EXTRA Credit.

    4. More class activities that helps them either partner up with old students so they can get what the learning style is all about...

    These are only some suggestions that I could come up with.. You already did a pretty good job of nailing the big ones.. Since tihis and helping out new students is done do I have to bring anything into class when discussion questions are due....

    beau -- good. thanks.

    On email I want to post

    I wanted to leave some feedback about the Habermas sight. I am in your Law and Social Change course and this is all new to me. For being a new student in your class, the Habermas sight was a little confusing, but with the help of students who have taken you before it has been really helpful. I believe that I will get the hang of not only the Habermas sight, but also how things go with the class. (For example: binders and creative measures) I have some ideas for the creative measeures I plan to do and meeting with you last Thursday was very helpful. I will leave one advice for new students though. Please go get help with the online Habermas sight with either Takata or with students who have taken her courses in the past. I'm sure that will help you in the end!

    emetia -- good. thanks for the feedback.

    On race/ethnic relations

    I just had a thought on todays discussion that I did not get a chance to talk about. I really like how the M&Z book makes a point to adress ALL people of color, red, yellow, brown, and black. Usually it feels like such a black and white issue when discussing racism and it is nice to see that someone is bringing up the entire issue.

    kristen -- good observation. why is that when someone mentions race/ethnic relations that sometimes people only think of "black/white" issues?

    On WI vs. IL drivers

    I wanted to tell you I really enjoyed today's class. I thought it was funny that Illinois and wisconsin people both feel the same way about each other's driving:)

    dawn -- think about how there are stereotypes for people from each state. for example, what are our images of new yorkers, californians, etc.?

    On class discussion on TV deterring crime

    i just wanted to comment on yesterdays class and you ask does tv deter crime? i would have to say yes and no, beacause as you can see with what happened with columbine. It seemed the more they broadcasted the school shootings and the more they emphasized on them, the more they keep on happening. In a way that tv may deter crime like with the whole sept 11, if the terroist know what were taking to stop a sept 11 from happenign again then they may just leave us alone. thats just a guess.

    sammi -- sounds like a possible creative measure?
