Most of these are more readily available and featured as they are due in the TappedIn classroom (Gradped). However, I will also post them here, along with additional suggestions and such.

Keep in mind, many of the readings are in the library database. If you cannot link directly to the reading, you should have enough information to retrieve the texts directly from the library database. You will need to be on campus or signed into the library in order to access the readings. You will need to download the Full Text of the article (the abstract isn't sufficient!).

If you are asked for a username and password, those are posted in Tapped In.
