Welcome to Spring 2022

Welcome to my classes for this semester. You’re either registered in ENGL 2130 (American Literature), ENGL 2145 (Intro to English Studies/Robots), or WRIT 3150 (Topics in Digital Rhetoric). I’m excited to work with you this semester. This course blog will be the announcement/instruction space for your class regardless of which one you’re in.


Have a look at your course syllabus below; it’s also available D2L. Post any questions/comments that you have on the syllabus and sign your name at the bottom.

Slack instead of D2L; what is Slack?

I don’t spend a lot of time with D2L. We will use Slack for links, class discussion, activities, and assignments. I will use this blog for announcements and instructions. I’ll only use D2L for posting grades. Any post on this blog will also be announced on Slack which should also trigger an email to your KSU student account if you set up Slack the right way when you join.

Signing up for and using Slack

Sign up for our class portal on Slack by clicking below. Only use your KSU student email when creating your Slack account and login. It’s probably a good idea to keep your password for Slack identical or similar to your KSU/netID password. Be sure to follow all of the steps to complete entry into Slack. Finally, if you want to engage with the class on a mobile platform, download the Slack app and log in there using the same email and password that you create. The Slack app is a great way to get some work done for the class on the go.

Work for Week One

After you’ve read the syllabus, joined Slack, and replied to my first message in the #general channel, you’re ready to get started on your work for the first week. Here is where you’ll find that:

Covid Statement

According to the University System of Georgia, students, staff, and faculty on our campus are strongly encouraged to mask inside of campus buildings. I take COVID-19 very seriously. Until infection statistics in Cobb County are below the CDC threshold for safely being unmasked indoors, I will be bringing masks into the classroom and inviting anyone who does not have one to wear one during class. Please take your safety, my safety, and the safety of your peers seriously and wear a mask during class.

Feel free to reach out with questions to me on Slack or via KSU email (pete dot kennesaw dot edu). Once again, I don’t quickly see or respond to emails in the D2L system because they are cumbersome to access; please don’t use the D2L email system. I look forward to meeting you!
