Jump Off
--Pick up both an index card and a small scrap of paper from the front table.
--On Monday and Wednesday of next week, refreshments, in Mr. Martin's humble opinion, are essential during presentations and film-viewing.  For the first few minutes of class, talk amongst yourselves in order to get some smorgasbords in order.  A sheet is located on the front table on which to write down everyone's refreshment-bringing intentions.
