You can also see all of the reading and watching materials from my last version of the curriculum here. There’s a lot of interesting stuff there, too. [In the old version of the curriculum there were not “required” and “suggested” reading/watching materials, just a long list (including the Ace Secrets tumblr and asexual fan fiction and students could choose what they wanted to read and watch… but half the students didn’t do the assignment (and consequently lost 2 classes worth of attendance, participation and homework) so no more “you can read whatever you want from this list” – now everyone has to read the same things, sorry guys, last class ruined it for everyone, but feel free to check out the fun stuff you used to be able to read for credit.]
