Bartholet's Nobody's Children: Abuse and Neglect, Foster Drift, and the Adoption Alternative (Beacon Press) is the only text you need to purchase for the course. You can buy the paperback book at the Law School COOP (617.499.3255), which is located at 1678 Massachusetts Avenue, near HLS. We just learned that the COOP has sold out of the book; we have ordered more copies and we're told they will arrive by Thursday (9/3/09) morning.

Hard copies of both Packet #2 and the supplemental report will be available in the Copy Center in the basement of Pound Hall shortly. We have also posted electronic copies of the packet and report on the course website, under the “Supplemental Course Materials” tab. There are 80 copies of the Supplemental Report at the Copy Center, so if you want an original version you should go by the Copy Center soon.
While there is no written assignment for the first class, there is a written assignment for the second class on Sept. 10. Students with last names G-Z should submit questions/comments before class; students with last names A-F should submit reaction papers after class. Students should read the Course Syllabus for further deadlines and details about assignments.
