ENG 340 Students [ONLY],

There is nothing to submit here; the comment box for this entry will normally be switched off.

NOTE: If you are looking for the proper entry to enter assignments about this week's primary texts (e.g. Borowski, Nomberg-Przytyk, Frankl, Delbo, Sierokowiak, Gyrnberg, Spiegelman, etc.) on the book/film of the week, you should click the link appropriate category link in the Scattergories menu to the left of the page. For example, click the *Literature* link to scan all entries tagged "LIterature" or *Holocaust Studies* to see any tagged "Holocaust" and submit your response to the appropriate entry (usually the title of the entry will match the title of the work you are working with for this module). The link can also be found by clicking HERE for Literature and HERE for Holocaust Studies.

At this particular entry (the one you are now reading) you will find the course syllabus (CLICK HERE).

Per your instructions on the first day of class--if you have not . . .

. . . already done so--print the course syllabus, staple it, READ IT!, initial each paragraph of and sign the student-teacher contract on the last page (if you still want to take the course), and bring the lot to our NEXT class meeting. You will keep the syllabus (put it in your portfolio that you will bring to each class) and you will give the signed document to me.

The other parts of your first homework assignment are listed on the course itinerary. Read and follow my instructions carefully (the key to doing well in one of my courses).

If you missed the first meeting and would like to see a fine introduction to this subject, please consider looking at the videos created by Professor Richard A. Gair, a Holocaust Educator, Teacher Trainer, Speaker & Consultant who works currently at Valencia Community College in Orlando, Florida for his course "LIT 2174: Literature & Multimedia of the Holocaust"

The channel for this course is available here:

Thank you Professor Gair for your work!

In conclusion, I enjoyed meeting each of you at our first meeting. See you at our next one!

Dr. Hobbs
