Weekly Presentations

At our first meeting, we will determine a presentation schedule for the remainder of the quarter. Each week, from the second to the eleventh, presenters (one, two, or three per week) will offer short presentations or help lead discussions of the readings.

Presenters will examine subjects in greater detail than the rest of the class and then prepare a short presentation and handout. Some presentations are historical and/or biographical in nature. Most expand upon one of the reading selections that the entire class will have read, and so require the presenter to read more extensively in the primary source.  

Presenters are encouraged to discuss their presentations with me well in advance of their presentation. (Of course, those volunteering to present in the first two weeks will benefit from my reciprocal kindness.)

 

Short Papers Two short papers will be due during the term. The short papers will be exercises in close reading and argumentation. Limiting yourself to a short passage from a poem or a novel, you will attempt to demonstrate how careful attention to the short passage allows us to come to some key insight(s) into the larger text from which the passage was taken.
