May 1: the final exam is scheduled for May 8, 8am in PAS 220. Read the Hamill essay, "The Necessity to Speak" and pick up the study questions at the bookstore. Sam Hamill spoke today (May 1) from 1-2:30.  

April 20: Your Preliminary Drafts are posted to Caucus.  Each item is under the writer's name. Please respond directly on Caucus to at least one draft. I recommend you read through them all to generate some ideas.  I will respond to the preliminary drafts on Caucus once others have responded.

Essay #3 assignment sheet is up and ready for you to tackle! Last big essay, woo hoo.

Virtual Class on Friday, April 10! We will not be meeting in class on Friday. You need to post to the listserv a developed response to the Manifesto, including questions for discussion, parts of the text which were unclear, things you thought really made sense. Be thinking about how "ideology" comes into play as you read. If you do not post, you will be counted absent.

I have put the summaries for the 1st, 6th, and 8th up (I have not received all the summaries....)

Unit 3 schedule is available on-line now!

All of the drafts for essay 2 that I received in electronic form have been posted to the Lesson Before Dying website (http://www.coh.arizona.edu/inst/engl102gaines/drafts.html). Please comment on your peers' drafts by emailing them directly ("CC:" a copy of the comments to me).

And, don't forget to get a copy of The Communist Manifesto (either from Antigone Books, a used store, or on-line at the Marx/Engels text archive)
