I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Freshman Year

Want to know what it is like to be a first year congressman? Now you can. CNN.com is producing a weekly series that follows the lives of Jared Polis, a Democrat from Colorado, and Jason Chaffetz, a Republican from Utah. The series will consist of 5-10 minute segments filmed by the congressmen themselves on Flip cameras.  Both men supplement the weekly videos with essays. 
Check out the NY Times article here or go directly to the Freshman Year page on CNN.com
