Sample Summary

Because this blog is supposed to operate as a teaching resource (as noted in my "Statement of Purpose"), it is appropriate to post models that students in my classes can follow.  The first such model appears below, and adheres to the standards laid out on the relevant page of my teaching website.

On December 21, 2010, posted an article by Tamar Lewin and Anemona Hartocollis, "Colleges Rethink R.O.T.C. after 'Don't Ask' Repeal."  In the article, Lewin and Hartocollis note that the impending repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is prompting many high-end colleges to reexamine their bans on the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.  Notably, "the presidents of Harvard, Yale and Columbia have issued statements expressing interest in bringing back the R.O.T.C.," which marks a significant change in their schools' positions.  However, Lewin and Hartocollis report that there are some who think the military will not open ROTC programs on such campuses due to insufficient potential for recruiting.  Even so, the idea that elite colleges are considering hosting ROTC units is a significant and welcome change.

Corps /kōr/ (n.)- a body; in this case, a body of military personnel
