There will be total of 8 questions that must be answered. Each one should be on its own word document.

The schedule below specifies the texts you are to read and the videos you should watch prior to completing each unit exam, as well as the due dates for exams. You can use the italicized weeks as a general guideline. If a link to a video doesn’t open by clicking on it, please copy and paste it into your browser.

*Please note, I have also provided links to any assigned short stories that aren’t in your textbook. However, nothing is permanent on the Web, so if the link to a title is no longer active, please conduct a Google search to find the work elsewhere (and send me an FYI email).

You’ll find discussion questions for each author to guide your weekly reading and as preparation for the Unit Exams. However, you will also choose *one question per author* to start a conversation with your peers

Answer to each questions chosen must meets word minimums (180 words minimum) through careful and thoughtful exploration of the possibilities inherent in the prompt, and shows a deeper (critical) engagement with the literature, rather than a superficial skimming. A good post supports ideas with textual references and offers a rich foundation for peer responses.
