From our Unizin peers:
Pressbooks in the classroom
In Michael Morrone’s class, Black Markets: Supply & Demand, students wrote about the black markets of their choosing in a new way. See the book here, and hear Michael and his students share their experience in the video below.
"I’ve seen a few of their résumés since the end of the semester and they’ve put this on there. So you know this is something that they’re not only proud of but it’s also something that allows them to demonstrate their expertise. And I think that Pressbooks and making this public increased the level of pride."Michael Morrone
