With only two weeks left…

…I feel like it’s finally appropriate to ask the question we’ve all been dying to hear answers to:

Who do you like better? Whitman or Dickinson? Why?

Words of Encouragement, Warning, and Apology from your Fearless Leader

Encouragement:

You are over the hump!  You have only one more full week and one partial week to go. Week 4 module unlocks today at 5 and Week 5’s module is abbreviated.

Warning:

The last week of the course is intense: some reading and a short voicethread, two papers in quick succession, final free blogging, and the final project.  So buckle up and plan accordingly.

Apology:

Rhonda drew my attention to the fact that I had mistakenly made Quiz 4 due on June 10 instead of June 17.  I have now corrected that, and I’m sorry if it worried anyone.  Thanks, Rhonda, for catching that!

Scraps of Genius

I have two recent books that I wish I could pass around to you all: The Gorgeous Nothings and Envelope Poems.  These volumes reproduce in facsimile the bits of Dickinson’s composition that were found on recipes, small pieces of paper, the insides and backs of envelopes, etc.  I will post a few images here for your enjoyment.

Office Hours Week Two

You have a technology assignment at the start of the week to familiarize yourself with our interface in Canvas for office hours, which allows audio, video, or text chat.  Based on polling data, OH for this week will be as follows:

Wednesday, 5/30, 8:00-9:00 p.m.

Friday, 6/1, 4:00-5:00 p.m.
