Linking Passage Exercises

Before each of the Monday and Wednesday lecture-based class meetings, one group of students will write Linking Passage Responses and post them to Blackboard. These posts are very short: they should consist of a passage of no more than 50 words from the assigned reading along with your commentary, also of no more than 50 words. The commentary should point out a way that the chosen passage represents a connection to or contrast with the reading for the previous class session.

These exercises should be posted to the discussion board by 8:00 on the morning of the day the class will meet. All late posts will receive substantially reduced grades; any post that arrives too late for me to incorporate it into class discussion will not receive credit.
