The Editors of The Electric Agora are pleased to announce the beginning of a new series on the magazine, “Course Notes.”
A number of EA contributors are teachers, and it occurred to us that a lot of interesting things go on in our classrooms — interesting material, interesting lectures, interesting exchanges and discussions with students — and that our readers might enjoy hearing about some of them. Like This Weeks Special and Provocations pieces, Course Notes entries will be relatively concise, the primary purpose being to spark interest, not to have any kind of final say on a subject. Also like This Weeks Special and Provocations, the topics that Course Notes cover will be somewhat haphazard, contingent as they are, on peoples syllabi and on the quality of classroom discussion on any given day.
We hope our readers will find the new content interesting and entertaining!
