Three home invasions
reported i n Northwood

Northwood IV
residents report
laptop, cash stolen
By ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily Staff Reporter
Residents of three different
units in Northwood Community
Apartments reported to the Uni-
versity's Department of Public
Safety yesterday that their prop-
erty hadbeen stolen from the first
floor of their apartments while
they were upstairs sleeping,
according to DPS spokeswoman
Diane Brown.
In an interview yesterday
evening, Brown said the alleged
home invasions took place in
the 1100, 1400 and 1500 blocks
of McIntyre Drive - which
constitute Northwood IV. She-
added that police believe the
time frame of the three home
invasions is between 1 a.m. and
11 a.m. yesterday morning. How-

ever, none of the residents filed
reports until yesterday after-
noon.
Brown said there were no signs
of forced entry at the apartments.
"All three had left their sliding
glass doors unlocked and did not
have the security bars in place
either," Brown said.
Brown noted that the residents
were not awakened by the bur-
glars but realized their personal
items were missing yesterday
morning, or in some cases, not
until yesterday afternoon.
The residents reported that
a digital camera, laptop com-
puter, cash and other items were
taken from the three apartments,
according to Brown. The mone-
tary value of stolen goods has not
been determined as of yesterday
evening.
Brown posted a crime alert
on the DPS website, and sent an
e-mail alert exclusively to North-
wood residents as of last night.
She said DPS and Housing Secu-
rity officers also would be going

door-to-door on North Campus
yesterday evening to hand out
crime alert fliers to residents.
Engineering sophomore
Michael Yonick, a resident of
Northwood, said he wasn't aware
of the home invasions until he
received a crime alert e-mail yes-
terday evening. He added that
he's not concerned for his safety
afters hearing about the alleged
home invasions.
"This is the first incident I've
ever seen at Northwood, so I feel
like it's generally safe," Yonick
said.
LSA junior Sara Rivera, a
resident advisor in Northwood
Houses - an area of Northwood
that exclusively houses freshmen
- said she was surprised that
the home invasions occurred but
doesn't feel she is in danger.
"I'm an RA here, so I know
the housing security officers,"
Rivera said. "They are very up
on their game, making sure they
know exactly what's going on at
all times."

BAZAAR
From Page 1A
come in and buy something, you
know you're helping out some-
body locally in your community."
Leyland said the bazaar is fill-
ing a niche for budding artists in
Ann Arbor.
"When you look at all the dif-
ferent art galleries and stuff
in town, there's nothing that's
showcasing emerging artists,"
Leyland said. "(The bazaar is)
givingthem a chance to put their
art out there and see how the
public responds to it."
Corryn Jackson, an art-
ist, curator and co-founder
of Streetheart Gallery in Ann
Arbor, said the bazaar gives
emerging local artists an oppor-
tunity to showcase their art for
a lower vendor fee than other
places like the Ann Arbor Art
Fair. The annual summer fair
costs artists more than $300 for
a booth.
"Most artists can't afford that,
especially ifthey are just starting
off," Jackson said. "(The bazaar)
kind of gives them a stepping
stone."
Leyland and Jackson met in
Ann Arbor more than eight years
ago and ran two gallery and vin-
tage clothing stores together in

Chicago. After those ventures,
they decided to start organizing
the monthly bazaars.
"I love vintage clothing more
than anything, and Corryn loves
making and promoting the arts
more than anything," Leyland
said.
Caitlin Dronen, a recent grad-
uate of the University's School
of Art & Design, was one of the
local' artist featured yesterday
for her handmade jewelry, which
is made from sustainable materi-
als.
"In the past year, I've worked
with alot of found materials and
organic materials - teeth, bone,
wood, crystal, leather," Dronen
said. "And the leather is all scrap
leather."
Dronen said she thinks the
bazaar caters to a different con-
stituency than the Ann Arbor
Art Fair, especially due to the
prices of the products.
"This is definitely, I think,
younger and more appropriate
for students on a college cam-
pus," she said.
Cookie Gomez, owner of
Above Ground Hair Studio, has
hosted previous events, includ-
ing a fashion show, in her salon.
She said she was happy to host
the bazaar in her studio this
month because she believes
it supports community build-

ing and offers a chance for Ann
Arbor residents to connect with
artists.
In June, the bazaar was locat-
ed in the Yellow Barn, a perfor-
mance space on West Huron
Street, and featured a local food
vendor. Leyland said the bazaar's
events depend on the atmo-
sphere and capabilities of the
space they are using.She said the
Above Ground Studio was a par-
ticularly suitable location to hold
the bazaar this time of the year.
"This time, we wanted to try
out State Street since all the stu-
dents are back in town and see
if we can get some foot traffic
from (the University)," Leyland
said.
LSA sophomores Emma Kelly
and Kristen Kiluk were drawn
into the store on their way back
from having lunch. Kelly said she
enjoys shopping at thrift stores
and smaller shops that sell local-
ly made products.
"I prefer to buy at resale shops,
especiallyif it's local," Kellysaid.
"I don't really like shopping at
Macy's or big box stores that
much."
Kiluk commented on the
bazaar's lower prices compared
to other vintage stores.
"Lots of vintage stores sell
things for twice the value now,"
she said.

LECTURETOOLS
From Page 1A
large lecture to be more inter-
active. Samson developed the
program and started using the
first version of LectureTools five
years ago.
Schools around the country
including Indiana University,
The Ohio State University, Mich-
igan State University and Texas
A&M University are also using
LectureTools. Because of the
high demand for the program,
Samson and his team have made
LectureTools into a commercial
product, though professors at
the University of Michigan can
still use it free of charge.

Challenging the assumption
that laptops are always distract-
ing to students, studies con-
ducted by Samson demonstrate
increased student attentiveness
during classes when using Lec-
tureTools. The Center for Learn-
ing and Teaching also conducted
studies that have shown similar
results.
"We're seeing that there is
generally an upside, andstudents
are able to ask questions and
interact more, and we have far
more discourse in class than I've
ever had in my 32 years teaching
here," Samson said.
Samson added that this semes-
ter he is experimenting with
allowing students to access Lec-
tureTools on their laptops dur-
ing his lectures. He has a team
of Undergraduate Research
Opportunity Program students
helping him study the benefits
and drawbacks this has for stu-
dents.
Though he didn't disclose
details of upcoming Lecture-
Tools projects, Samson said
he and his team have plans for
improvements to the program.
"There's something coming
that could literally change class-
es, and the way you study that
would integrate LectureTools
with a variety of other resourc-
es," Samson said.
Mika LaVaque-Manty, an
Arthur F. Thurnau professor
and an associate professor of
political science and philosophy
at the University, has been using
LectureTools for three years.
Though he said it took him a
while to adjust to the multitask-
ing it requires, he also said it has
helped himimprovehis teaching
methods and make his classes
more interactive.
"Students feel more comfort-
able about raising their hands
or they feel comfortable about
having a five-minute conver-
sation during a large class
because of LectureTools," he
said.

The only drawback is the time
it takes for students and teach-
ers to get used to the program's
functions, LaVaque-Manty said.
"Some students have differ-
ent kinds of learning styles so
they prefer old-fashioned pen-
and-paper note taking, and that's
totally fine by me," LaVaque-
Manty said. "I make Lecture-
Tools optional."
Josephine Kurdziel, a lecturer
IV of biology at the University
who has used LectureTools for
three years, said the program
makes it possible for her to gauge
students' understanding of con-
cepts in large lectures. The pro-
gram enables her to get students
actively engaged in the material,
especially because LectureTools
allows students to anonymous-
ly ask questions and receive
answers from her and the gradu-
ate student instructors during
lectures.
"If students are just kind of
there and the instructor isn't
asking many questions, they're
just passively listening, and that
isn't the most effective way to
remember material," Kurdziel
said. "You have to kind of work
with the ideas."
LSA freshman Lindsay Roth-
field said LectureTools is useful
for taking notes and following
along during class, but she wish-
es it had more features.
"It's very limited in how you
can organize so you can only put
bullets, and I like to organize my
notes with many different bullets
and dashes," she said.
LSA freshman Maxwell
Geisendorfer said LectureTools
is useful to him in his politi-
cal science class. His only com-
plaint is that occasionally a slide
doesn't show up.
"Other than that, it's just gen-
erally useful, especially in such
a large lecture hall," he said.
"There are almost 300 people in
that class so it's like each person
has a more personalized way of
looking at the lecture notes."
