If I can give any advice to new students it will be this, don’t procrastinate. One of my favorite thing about this class is the projects that we did and how involved each assignment was. The amount of research that had to be done was a lot but necessary to be able to grasp the topic. During projects that I procrastinated in I felt as if my writing was lacking and boring. In this course you will be doing some lengthy and shorter readings. My advice is to use the tips and tricks that are introduced to you early in the class to good use. Annotating in the sidelines of writings and using the sandwich method to better present your quote is also extremely helpful. Don’t forget the low-stake assignments either, they start adding up in the long run. Have to admit, I’m currently beating myself up for forgetting them.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Class Meetings & Times: in person Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4 – 5:15 PM in Namm 403
Office Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12 – 1:30 PM. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation via email that you should keep all semester. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email. I suggest you have multiple times in mind, since your schedule may not mesh with mine!
