Group Work

The response groups will each work together on leading class sessions twice during the term, once on an assigned short story and once on a poem of the group's choice. For each presentation, the group will meet to draw up a plan and then touch base with me. Next, the group will assign the class the reading (or optional additional reading, in the case of the short fiction session) necessary for the class session. Then the group will preside over the class session itself, which should include class discussion as well as any material that the group wants to present about texts and critical approaches. After the class session, each group member will write up a brief narrative of the group's work, including an evaluation of each group member's contributions to the session.
