Contained within each chapter is an on-line lesson of relevant materials from your textbook, including web links to related information. The on-line lessons are intended to guide you through the reading, and they are double spaced so that you may print them and supplement them with your own notes.

You should read and complete each chapter in order by the due dates listed. Generally, each chapter will consist of required reading(s) from the text book, presentation of on-line materials, on-line activities, an assignment, and some form of communication.
