I looked over the writing assignments completed in class today. Here’s a couple of things:
1. Virtually without exception people were satisfied with the group work. We’ll make it a permanent component of class, though of course we won’t be doing it every day. For instance on Tuesday, we’ll be getting into the historical context of Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship. If, as I suggested, you screened the short documentary Life During the Early Years of Napoleon’s Reign then you’re already ahead of the game. That suggestion was made in order to compensate for the cancellation of class on Tuesday.
