For EL266, a brief quotation from the assigned text, together with a non-obvious question or observation, that you will be prepared to talk about if called on in class. (It's part of "React," the second "R" in the RRRR sequence.) For readings due on Tuesday, post by 9:30am Monday. For readings due on Thursday, post by noon on Wednesday. (The same schedule holds for students taking the Wednesday evening section.)
For each assigned reading, leave about two to four comments responding to other people's agenda items. The best comments will be supported with page numpers or direct quotations from the works we are studying. Return later, in order to see whether anyone has responded to your own comment, and continue the discussion. Print out your agenda item shortly before class. (I may not always collect it, but having it in class with you will help you remember what you wrote about.) For extra participation points, try to get a conversation going. Test out ideas, acknowledge when a peer has changed your mind, quote from the books in order to challenge (politely) your peers' claims, and quote from the books in order to support your own claims when challenged.
