Most in-class experience will be lecture-based, but some parts are designed as a collective experience. This means that other students will be counting on you (and you on them), and so please come to class prepared. If you don't understand something, that's perfectly fine; we'll figure it out together and make sure no one is left behind. But if you don't put in the effort, it will hurt what everyone gets out of the class. If you have a question about one of the readings, post a question in Perusall. If you think you may know an answer to a query another student posted, or have a suggestion, please try to answer it. In fact, if you merely have an interesting idea, please contribute that as well.
