gharris (Fri, 16 Oct 2015 20:55:50 GMT): Rollback: Please address the following: (1) How does this course differ from FA 2312? Based on their descriptions they seem very similar; (2) Please propose an alternative title that does not include the word “Thinking.” One could argue that that activity is part of all courses in the GW curriculum, which makes it redundant; and, (3) Please propose an alternative course description that succinctly outlines the specific topics to be covered.
