Monday, 1/5; Tuesday, 1/6

For the first day of class today, students completed and submitted a writing sample. Then we reviewed and discussed the course norms, including signing up for Remind.com reminders. Students also signed up for Google Classroom which we will use extensively this semester. We finished by discussing Billy Collins’s poem, “Introduction to Poetry,” talking about paraphrasing, Collins’s message, and the three main tools of the poet.
