Please summarize the intent of the proposed changes. 

We have tried better to limit the courses listed to the ones we are most likely to teach in the next two years, and we have removed courses that reflect the special topics of faculty no longer teaching at UMM or that have been replaced by other or new courses. We have left a few extra to accommodate as easily as possible the new hires we hope to make in the next two years. The change in total 3000-4000 courses also reflects courses approved since the last catalogue, including two repeatedly offered May Session classes and three courses devised by new faculty. The minor is now more in line with other minors on campus, and more accessible to students in Elementary Education especially.
