Most of our class session today will be made up of a viewing of the small group presentation on Tracks by Louise Erdrich. After I post that link and the people gathered for class watch it, we’ll rejoin each other in a Zoom call to discuss the questions that the group raised and any other issue that may come up from everyone in class. Anyone not attending class today (9/9) will need to reply that they have watched both recordings.
In today’s class we will also begin discussing the midterm exam.
Given that it’s a short week, we will not have a CRA this week. However, I do have some readings and activities for you:
- I’m very interested in how the class is going for everyone at this point. I’ve put together a survey to learn how the class is working for you. Click this link to take the 10-question survey, and please complete it by the end of the day Wednesday, 9/9. Your feedback is anonymous and will help me continue to build the best class experience for you.
- Watch the film Memento (2000) this weekend and be prepared to discuss it by Monday, 9/14.
- Read the Tim O’Brien short story “How To Tell a True War Story” (1990), by Wednesday, 9/16.
