This is a fun course, but it is a challenge. To help best prepare you for the class, I have developed a summer assignment. The due dates are included in the document.

The point of summer assignment is not to overwork you but instead prepare you. I encourage you to take your time with the reading and don’t rush things. Take time and reflect on the book.

As Summer approaches remember, spending time with your family is important. That is why I included the scavenger hunt. It is optional, but something that my students enjoyed doing last year. I even participated and had a blast.

I will be updating the site throughout the summer and I would encourage every student to check in at least once a week. I will be re-reading Henrietta Lacks along with you all and I will include my thoughts in weekly posts. I will likely set up a discussion board once I get the kinks worked out so we can discuss the details of the book.

This is a new website and I have never hosted on this platform before.  A lot of new programs to figure out.  Like I said, check out the website once a week for updates regarding the book and course preparations.

If you have any concerns or questions contact me at jenningsj@wcde.org
