The goal of this proposal is for me to further develop my;instructional technology skills so as to improve my classes, especially;the two classes I teach on American immigration: Sociology 105 and;Sociology/American Culture 304. I particularly want to learn to use Course Tools to its full capacity and to develop Power Point skills so that I can turn the myriad handouts I share with my students in these classes into;slides that present the data, theoretical syntheses, and debates in a more;effective way for my students.
