• Each week I will post new material by Monday morning
  • Your mission will be to post twice: once in the Comment section below my discussion question, and once in response to a classmate’s comment
  • All posts should be your own ideas, unless you credit a source (newspaper article, for example).  Your own expertise is more than welcome! Feel free to bring in your vast array of knowledge, as well as connections to texts and films outside the confines of the syllabus.
