Responses

Before each class, you will post a quotation from the reading (with page or line citation) and a paragraph of about three sentences to our discussion board on PWeb. This paragraph will present an observation or pose a question for discussion in class. These paragraphs do not need to be fully formed arguments; they are meant to open up discussion the next day. You are invited to be curious and exploratory in these responses. Moments of confusion or frustration may prove to be excellent starting points for our conversations. These posts are due by midnight the night before class. Because we all rely on being able to read the posts, that deadline is serious business. Late posts will lose substantial credit, and posts submitted too late to be useful in class discussion will receive no credit.
