Reading Days - Use to Your Advantage

Hello Class,

Remember at the beginning of our course (and in our syllabus) when I said that there would be a few "reading days" during the semester?

Due to some really messed up flight schedules this weekend, . . .

. . . Monday, March 19 will be one of those days. That means, we won't actually meet on the Monday after spring recess. You can use that day instead to read and catch up. We WILL meet on Wednesday, however, in our regular classroom at our regular time.

So, on Wednesday, please bring your final drafts of formal reading response #2 AND your peer-reviewed first draft with the rubric stapled to the top. You MUST bring both.

Those of you who didn't have your paper peer-reviewed by your classmates in our previous meeting, should have had it peer-reviewed by a friend or someone else by now. So, I'll expect to see BOTH versions of your paper (peer-reviewed first and final) in class on Wednesday.

Because of this, all student presentations of readings from The Bell Jar previously scheduled for Monday and Wednesday will now be pushed forward to Friday. So, it is looking now like Friday will be a day FULL of TBJ chapter presentations. If we run out of time and don't get a chance to hear from EVERYONE by Friday, I many have to push the leftovers to the next Monday. But, we'll just play that by ear.

I'll have the English Dept. secretary post a sign on the door of the course room tomorrow to remind anyone who doesn't check their e-mails about the cancelled class meeting for Monday.

Those of you who came Friday before break for the extra credit stuff, please be patient as I erase absences and zeros from your participation scores. Hopefully, I'll have those finished by Wed. or Thurs. I'm not working on that right now, but I WILL get to it, don't worry.

Hope you all had a good spring recess.

See you in person on Wednesday!
