We're into the second week of classes now. My ecocriticism/Shakespeare class was rough today because most of the students didn't have context to read the article well, and didn't bother to look up the stuff mentioned to get that context. What happened in 1789, and why might that be important?
Yeah. (It's going to get us to Shakespeare, really, but they need to get there with some work.)
My writing class was better, but still tiring.
And then there was Intro to Lit, where we talked about Cullen's "Yet Do I Marvel" and it was so, so very good. First, it's a stellar poem, just great for discussion. And second, the students were ready to discuss it. Thank dog!
Now to grade some small stuff and prep for tomorrow.
