Choose Bridge to the Blog Date!

You can now select the date on which you will complete your Bridge to the Blog at the Doodle poll which is here for the 9:30 section or here for the 11:00 section.

Note that you will choose only one date.  The poll has dates only, so if you want to coordinate it with topics, consult your syllabus.  As soon as the poll is complete I will post a schedule of names/dates for each section under the Bridge Dates page here on the blog.

This assignment is also now in Canvas, which is where you will submit the url for your post when it is complete; there is also a rubric for assessment in Canvas, or a sample of the rubric categories above on the page Rubrics under Assignments.

DATES FOR WEEK 2 ON GATSBY AND NEW CRITICISM ARE AVAILABLE!  PLEASE CHOOSE ONE OF THOSE IF YOU’D LIKE TO GET ONE ASSIGNMENT DONE EARLY!

What Do You Mean You Haven’t Posted Yet?

muppets read posterThis post initiates discussion on our course blog, which is shared by the two sections of 295 that I am teaching this fall.  This is a rich collaborative space, on which we may continue threads of conversation from class, publish assignments, respond personally to the literature or theory, ask questions, link pertinent outside materials, and more.  Words I might use to characterize my expectations of the blog are active; dialogic; fluid; capacious; self-motivated; collective.  Get going.
