US101US: First Year Seminar Reading List
2022-2023 Reading List
US101US treats video as "texts" and discusses them in full alongside additional readings and outside sources that are determined and chosen by class discussion leaders (instructors and students) that will not appear here. US101US embeds activities in all classes and some of these readings are treated as "jigsaw" activities to cover content even if students are only responsible for one part of the "jigsaw." Additional readings TBD and subject to change.
