Course and Personal Evaluations
Please complete these evaluations.
1. Official evaluations of MCC courses are handled by the system office via MyCommnet. Please go to your MyCommnet page, click on the "Banner Self-Service" tab (right next to the "Blackboard Vista" tab), and complete an evaluation for this class.
2. I am also asking you to complete my personal evaluation (which is also completed anonymously). It asks some questions not on the official evaluation, and I am often guided by student comments to these questions about how to improve this course. Please take time to offer me constructive criticism and feedback. The evaluation has been posted here http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JK7NSDD.
Thank you very much!

The warmth of other suns : the epic story of America's great migration by
Call Number: E185.6 .W685 2010 STACKS
Publication Date: 2010
In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America.
Bowling alone : the collapse and revival of American community by
Call Number: HN65 .P878 2000 STACKS
Publication Date: 2000
Drawing on vast new data that reveal Americans' changing behavior, Putnam shows how we have become increasingly disconnected from one another and how social structures -- whether they be PTA, church, or political parties -- have disintegrated. Until the publication of this groundbreaking work, no one had so deftly diagnosed the harm that these broken bonds have wreaked on our physical and civic health, nor had anyone exalted their fundamental power in creating a society that is happy, healthy, and safe.
The arrival by
Call Number: GRAPHIC NOVELS TAN GRAPHIC NOVELS
Publication Date: 2007
In this wordless graphic novel, a man leaves his homeland and sets off for a new country, where he must build a new life for himself and his family.
The Wisdom Books: Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes: A Translation with Commentary by
Call Number: BS1403 .A48213 2010
Publication Date: 2011
Here, in Robert Alter’s bold new translation, are some of the most magnificent works in world literature. The astounding poetry in the Book of Job is restored to its powerful ancient meanings and rhythms. The account of creation in its Voice from the Whirlwind is beautiful and incendiary—an unforgettable challenge to the place of man in the universe. The serene fatalism that construes life as ephemeral and without purpose suffuses Ecclesiastes with a quiet beauty. The pithy maxims of Proverbs impart a worldly wisdom that is still sound and satirically shrewd.
