Course description:  TREATING CANCERS

	This course is meant to help students to improve their
abilities to inquire about, and to analyze experimental evidence
concerning, treatments of cancers.  This course is also meant to
help students to get better at using writing and talking to learn.

Required Text:  None.  (Students will likely use mainly research and
review articles.)

Typical Weekly Assignments:  Many of the homework assignments will
include writing, and most of each class period will be devoted to
small-group and whole-class discussions.

Exams/Papers:  There will be no exams in this course.  About 70% of
the course grade will be based on homework assignments, and the rest
will be based on in-class activities (discussions, usually).
