Tuesday, 9/8

I collected seminar reflections at the start of class. We had one last discussion of Mice before moving on to reading two texts — one about school by Mary Sherry, and a second by Lincoln (his second inaugural address). Students annotated each one and we started talking about the audience and purpose of the first. We’ll do more with the second next time. Homework: finish thinking about Lincoln’s audience and purpose; procure your independent novels for 9/16.
