Don’t forget to come to your research appointment this week. The research appointments are held in my office, LI 2141, which is on the first floor of the library. It is worth 10 points of your final grade and I will approve your research topic at your appointment. We’ll also probably find some good sources for you to start working on your project.

(Name your quiz file lastname-quiz2; example: Wakimoto-quiz2.doc) I will return your graded quiz in class next week. Do not work with each other. This is just like a quiz in class and I expect you to do your own work.
