What’s due?

To be clear, as I know there are several assignments that you’re working on right now:

October 16 (today): Essay #2 WAS due.

October 18 (Wed): No reading worksheet #6. Revisions of Essay #1 due (*unless you did not get your essay back last week). Revisions are optional. If you revise your essay, you must turn the revised essay in with the original and a note indicating what changes you made.

October 23 (Mon): Take-home exam #1 due.




reminder re: revision of Essay #1

dear all,

Remember that revisions of Essay #1 — if you decide to do them– are due a week after you got your essay back from me. For most of you, the revised essay is due this Wednesday.

If you are turning in a revision, you must give me:

*the original essay

*the revised essay

*a letter (1-2 paragraphs) that explains the changes you made


for next week…

For Monday 10/2: read or re-read the FOUR blog posts from Asian American Writers Workshop (click “Part 1” “Part 2” “Part 3” and “Part 4”).  If you did not turn in Reading Worksheet #3, you can turn it in on Monday.

For Wednesday 10/4: read TWO pieces by Bayoumi and watch the Secret Life of Muslims episode about Linda Sarsour– all materials are available on the Course Materials page. The questions for Reading Worksheet #4 (due 10/4) are up.

have a good weekend!

*important* change to next week’s homework

dear all,

The revised reading worksheet (#3) is up now + it includes questions for Wednesday’s reading (Lopez and the Asian American Writers’ Workshop Open City series of blog posts).

I have decided to make the film (Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America (2016), available on Kanopy) an OPTIONAL assignment.

It’s a great film + I suggest you watch it! And, we will talk about it in class if enough of you have seen it.

If you watch the film and write a one-page reflection (and turn this in on Wednesday), you will get extra credit.  But, it is more important that you complete your reading worksheet, so only do the extra credit writing if you have enough time, after you have completed the required homework.

Be in touch with any questions.
