*While the course is appropriate for both Appreaciating and Participating in the Arts and Cultures and Values Areas of Knowledge, the committee felt that it would probably fit in more naturally as an AP course, rather than as a CV, as currently proposed. B. Simerka will communicate this to the proposers. Also, a PLAS statement should be included in the syllabus.
**The committee agreed that the syllabus should provide a more detailed description of the activities students are asked to engage in, in order to assess whether the course indeed promotes active inquiry. LIkewise, the committee suggests that a midterm exam be included in order to ensure whether the students are assimilating the materials.


The meeting was adjourned at 1:45 p.m.
