In today’s class we’ll be discussing the film Memento. Later in the week, I’ll ask students to watch the Memento small group presentation video.
Your CRA this week will be on Tim O’Brien’s short story “How To Tell a True War Story”. Please sign up for your CRA4 task today. Since this is our fourth CRA, you should be signing up only for the job that you haven’t completed so far in any of the CRAs.
We’ll also be discussing the format of the midterm exam today in class.
I’ll be updating this post later in the week to forecast a new reading for next week, but remember that next week will be our first of two weeks discussing Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved. I will expect everyone to be at least half of the way through that novel by next Monday, 9/21.
I’ve received great feedback on the survey from last week. My biggest takeaway from it is that some of you would prefer an earlier, more involved discussion of the research project assignment. I’ll be putting up a video on that this week, and we’ll talk more about it next week.
