I had to fiddle to get our Student-Led Discussions Schedule sorted out. That meant moving some people around, so that nobody was stuck leading one day alone. I didn’t move anyone more than one week, and most of you are on the day you signed up for.
I’ll add topics for the rest of the discussions on the schedule soon, but I wanted to get this schedule set up as soon as possible, so I just put up topics for this coming week, and make sure to set your calendars, reminder notifications, and so on so that you don’t forget to prepare for your discussion!
The discussion for 27 Sept. will be on the topics below. Check that your name appears on this schedule twice!
