For this week’s assignment, I participated in a discussion in another poetry course. I gave my portrayal of the poem “Still to be Neat” by Ben Johnson by commenting on a student’s post. Although the student did not respond, a different classmate replied to my post.
My opinion about this assignment is that my initial reaction was hesitance. I was unsure of how the course’s students and professor will react to me participating in their discussion. I felt as if I was walked into a random class, sat down, and started participating in a discussion. It was honestly a bit weird to think about the fact that we can go into virtual classrooms and not only view the discussion but participate. Overall, the experience was definitely new and interesting. I was glad that someone responded to my post and enjoyed reading the poem that the class was discussing.
