Dear English 567 students,
The syllabus (at http://public.wsu.edu/~campbelld/engl567/sched567f15.htm and at our course blog, https://transatlanticnaturalisms.wordpress.com, has been updated with missing information, such as the percentages for each assignment, and with your names from yesterday’s signup for presentations. Note: No one signed up for Theodore Dreiser, so if you wanted to discuss him and didn’t see the space to do so at the bottom of the page, please let me know. Also, if you have any changes you’d like to make, please let me know.
The links to the MLA bibliography and other resources are now available on the blog and on the syllabus linked above.
For the “your choice” articles: If you signed up for a “your choice” article, go to the MLA bibliography and search for an article that you would like to share with the class. A week before the class, post the article citation to our course blog and let us know where we can find it (through MLA?). You can also send me a .pdf of the article you’ve downloaded and I can post it to Blackboard. We will all then read the article before your “article expert” presentation.
The Blackboard site has been activated, and you’ll see the readings under Content. I’m going to send this message through Blackboard as well as through my.wsu.edu, so you should receive both of them. Remember, WSU only lets us use WSU addresses now.
After this, I won’t be emailing you regularly about course events. Instead, you can follow the course blog by email or follow @campbellcourse on Twitter.
Have a good weekend, and enjoy reading L’Assommoir!
