1 unit, P/NP, class number: TBA

Are you a student who wants to earn a unit for reading There There and participating in On the Same Page this fall? If so, L&S 10 is the course for you. 

Here are the course requirements:

  • Read the novel over the summer or early fall, and post a substantive response to it on bcourses. (We will provide some prompts before the semester starts.) Your response can take any of a number of forms, from a short essay to a video to a song or a Prezi . . . be creative!
  • Comment (on bcourses) on at least three other students' responses to the book.
  • Attend two class meetings on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 in 3 LeConte Hall. The dates this semester are September 17 and November 19. In order to pass the class you must attend both class meetings, so make sure these two Tuesday evenings are clear.
  • Attend at least two qualifying events related to There There (and be sure to sign in at the door), and submit a short response to each on bcourses. Qualifying events include the keynote event with Tommy Orange, scheduled for Monday, August 26 in the Haas Pavilion (exact time TBA); a panel on Indigenous Bay Area on September 18 from 4-5:30; and a panel called California on the Page on September 26 from 3:30-5:00. Other qualifying events will be announced by late summer 2019.
  • Comment (on bcourses) on at least three other students' event responses.

On the Same Page is designed to welcome you into the intellectual community at Cal. We firmly believe that interacting with faculty--and with other students--around a topic of mutual interest is one of the best ways to ensure the quality of your education. All of the activities required for L&S 10 will be fun and interactive and educational. You will be glad you participated!

Our hope is that participating fully in On the Same Page will be so rewarding that you will continue to seek out enrichment opportunities throughout your undergraduate years at Cal.
