Class Discussion #1: Favorite Excerpts from Student Blog Posts on “The Yellow Wallpaper”

For class today, I asked each of you to read through your classmates’ Reading Response Blogs on “The Yellow Wallpaper,” to choose your favorite post and to bring in an excerpt from that post along with a rationale for choosing it (why did you find it interesting, compelling, likeable, provocative, etc.?). That rationale could refer to content or style.

We didn’t get to discuss those excerpts in class today, so instead, please share them here, by copying in the excerpt and then typing your rationale.

We also discussed the importance of citing today, and giving credit to other sources and putting yourself in dialogue with them: so make sure to cite your source (in this case, your classmates’ post), mentioning them by name and also linking to their post in your response.

Comments should be made no later than Friday night (9/15). I’m looking forward to seeing what you chose!
