Welcome

On the first day of class

You don't need to prepare anything, but if you have your iPad, please bring it to class.

In this class, I hope to make use of the iPads and laptops you've been issued.

If you are a part-time student or you have chosen not to opt into the Griffin Technology Advantage plan, don't worry, you will still be able to do all of the assignments, but you will need to supply a few extra things such as printouts, different colored highlighters, and a few other resources. (We'll talk about that if and when the need arises.)


What's the deal with the Monday due dates?

If you're exploring this website on your own before class, you might be a bit surprised to see that the calendar on the right has due dates on Monday.

This class meets only on Wednesdays. There are no Monday classes, but there will be weekly online exercises that are due by 5pm Monday afternoon. These exercises are intended to prepare you (and me) for the class discussions on Wednesday. If Monday is not a good day for you, you can of course start on those assignments over the weekend.


What are your educational goals? What do you bring to this class?
Literary texts don't look like web pages, or College 101 textbooks. Because these works were not written for 21st century audiences, to get the most out of them, this activity will introduce some strategies that will help you read the texts we'll be looking at this term.
