ARTICLES AND ESSAYS
This is listing of articles, essays and other writings
is by no means complete: Often the selection of a piece for inclusion
here is highly arbitrary or related to discussions in the classroom or
elsewhere. I list the videos and powerpoints I
have published for classroom use in a different list.

Index of Postings
I have been using http://sethward.Posterous.com
to organize not only blog-style posts but some of my articles, essays and other
writings. Apparently this blog does not display the exact date of posting
automatically, and the date of posting is often months or years after the date
the piece was written. The reference at the bottom of each piece says how long
ago it was posted.
March 2013: Unfortunately, Posterous is
shutting down and I am copying the postings as individual files on http://uwyo.edu/sward -- and trying out some
other blogging platforms.
May 2013: I am attempting a global update to http://drsethward.Wordpress.com
– I am not sure that the global update works in all cases!
This index was compiled Jan. 3 2012.
Authorship: All the postings are my own work; I retain copyright
and in some cases they are posted elsewhere and/or published. Readers may link
to these postings.
Index: there are indices in the website, and some pieces have
multiple tags. In the following list, each post is usually not reproduced in
multiple categories. The listings below are not necessarily in chronological,
alphabetical or any other order.
