Welcome to EL 267, "American Literature 1915-Present."
The course website is located at http://blogs.setonhill.edu/DennisJerz/EL267. I will update the online syllabus periodically, so a printout wouldn't be all that useful. The offical version of the syllabus is the online version (though I will notify you in advance of any significant changes -- I won't try to trick you by adding work or moving up deadlines).
Topics for today:
- Review syllabus.
How will this course differ from high school English?
Discuss summary vs. analysis (see "Writing that Demonstrates Thinking Ability").
The front page of the blog only shows the main class topic and the main readings scheduled for that day. To get a full list of the lesson plan for any day, click on the date on the calendar.
