Each week Paul will post a short story for the class to read. Along with the story will come some questions to ponder. The course will succeed only if all students participate by commenting on the questions, upon the ideas of other student or the instructor, and adding their own thoughts about the story itself, or about issues it raises. Each week there will be an optional face-to-face session on Zoom. Please watch this short video, which explains how this online course works:
