All of my
students are encouraged to join either the Introduction to Literature
(LIT 165) or the Effective Writing I (ENG 120) online forum (or both,
if you've got a lot of online energy). In fact, I invite any person interested
in either of these subjects to join the discussion. Frankly, I'm excited
that I have the opportunity to make this kind of list available to you.
The more people who join and check in regularly, the more helpful it's
likely to be.
reading and posting messages to an online forum be helpful? Maybe it will,
maybe it won't. But it is a place where you can post a question and hope
to get an answer from your classmates or the instructor; it's a place
where you can bouce ideas around and get your friends and classmates to
express opinions they aren't comfortable expressing in the open air of
the classroom. (Of course, rude, crude, or offensive material will be
be fun. The only way to find out is to try it.
