This week, we’ll continue with student presentations of pecha-kuchas. On Wednesday, we’ll discuss matters related to the longer essays and pecha-kucha recordings/reflections. On Friday, you’ll distribute a rough draft of your longer essay to two peers.
A reminder that the blog posts for this two-week period have been canceled to give you more time to work on pecha-kuchas and longer essays.

Today, we’ll discuss a variety of logistical matters: recording and reflections for the pecha-kuchas, for example, and best practices for citing sources in your longer essays. We’ll also talk about the feedback you will be giving classmates on their rough drafts. The reading for today is optional, but it’s interesting, so I’ve left it as an optional reading on the syllabus.
Please note: my office hours Wednesday will be from 2:00-3:30 instead of the usual time.
