Week 7

As your second essay is due this Friday, and as the beginning of this week is lost to mid-term break, there is no learning journal activity assigned. I hope you will spend any extra time carefully editing your paper and come prepared for the third of our essay writing workshops this Wednesday. Remember, this second paper needs to conform to MLA guidelines, which you can learn more about in our course text or through the links listed in the toolbar on the right under "MLA." Please feel free to send me a draft of your paper or your intro paragraph if you'd like some feedback.

This Friday we will also be introducing some of the concepts and terminology that will be important for the section of the course on short fiction. If you check the course schedule for the next two weeks you will notice a number of small sections of the text are assigned that will provide a good refresher on fiction.

I hope everyone is having a nice break and a happy Thanksgiving!
