This space is where students can find my own responses to many of the texts that we are reading in ENG 3230. After students have submitted their blogs for each week, I will post my readings of the texts—not all of them but those that I think are perhaps the most difficult and challenging. My posts will be similar to informal lectures that I would provide in a face-to-face classroom discussion. You are encouraged to post questions or comments you might have in response to my reading or any other assigned texts for that thematic unit. It is not required, however, that you read or respond to my posts; I simply offer these as an opportunity to interact with me directly by exploring the readings further with insights that might not be immediately available in the Prezi topic overviews. Think of this as our virtual classroom discussion space. If you have a question about something you would like to discuss with me individually (not pertaining to the assigned readings), then it is recommended that you do so by email or through the Contact page on my website; or, since I’m also teaching a face-to-face class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, you are more than welcome to make an appointment to see me on one of those days, either during my office hours (3:15-4:15 pm) or in the morning before I teach class (10:30-11:30 am).
