Environmental Justice and the State
Students need to complete the readings and take time to think thoughtfully about them in order to participate in classroom activities. Therefore,I ask student to complete seven reading memos over the duration of the course. Reading reflection need to be formatted as at least one page, single-spaced, 12pt. font, with one-inch margins, and no header, word count at least 700. Need to provide a brief synopsis of what the reading was about, define and provide examples of the main concepts, and propose questions for the class. Feel free to draw connections between prior class readings, discussions, or lived experiences.
