Syllabus English 71 Spring 2010 Section 08
Here is the syllabus. Consult it often. It is subject to change as needs and inspiration dictate.
I will be in my office from 10:00-12:00 on Thursday, May 20. There are a few of you who have some work to give me. You may also pick up any papers, portfolios or journals at that time. If you have missed a lot of class and/or not done the work, there's not much to discuss. If we have been in conversation about your grade, you may visit during office hours to talk. You can also just stop by and say hello. I have greatly enjoyed my classes this semester, especially English 71.
Some of you have asked questions about policy. I will answer them here. Check the syllabus. A lot of the answers are there.
