Note: This page lists some of the links that I've gathered pertaining to texts and topics in this class.  However, just because something appears on the Internet does NOT immediately lend it credibility.  You will need to evaluate these and all sources for their effectiveness; we will discuss this process in class.

If you find links which you think would be useful to include here, please let me know!
