This blog is where we will articulate our thoughts about the things we are reading, and other contemporary fictions. Its purpose is to enhance in-class discussions of the texts we are considering as well as take into account the many fictions we encounter in our daily lives.

Writing enhances understanding, and this assignment is designed to get you doing a lot of short, informal writing as a way to think through ideas and make connections.

The sharing of ideas often sparks new ideas, so writing in a connected, public space allows us not only to better understand what we’re reading by writing about it, but also to better understand and articulate our own thoughts in relation to those of others.

Be bold. Take risks. Make connections. Agree and disagree with one another. Explain why.
