    Read and annotate for class on the due date.  Bring your annotations to class.  It is a challenging read- remember: it is acceptable to annotate areas that you are confused by noting them with a question mark and your ideas/questions/troubles in the margin.  You need to define new words with synonyms that make sense when you reread them in context.

    This article discusses how humans tend to make quick judgments about a person's warmth and competence based on nonverbal communication and stereotypes and  how they might be treated in the workplace as a result of these judgments. It uses Ann Cuddy's research as support for its claims.
