~~ H O M E ~~

Welcome, or welcome back, to West Chester University, Spring 2002.

~~

Wondering what to do here? You can get around this site simply by following the links to the left. They'll stay put there as you navigate around, through, under, above, and beyond the information presented on these pages (unless you go exploring). If you check back here regularly during the semester, you'll notice new pages added as class notes, handouts, assignment sheets, announcements and various other materials begin to appear under the headings you see over there. Some materials are already in place (like the course syllabus), and you can try clicking on them to get a feel for how the site works.

~~

This site is maintained by the founder of Brainstorm Communication Services, your current English instructor, me, Stacy Tartar Esch. Its purpose is to give you, the student of Introduction to Literature, an additional way to get in touch with me as well as an additional way get connected to information crucial to your success in one of those courses named above. On this site, you'll find the course syllabus, my own lecture notes, visual aids, class handouts, exercises or suggested exercises, suggested reading, announcements, and supplemental links for exploring topics we discuss in class further. All of the materials published here have only one aim: to help you get your head around our course material more completely, or more conveniently.

~ ~

I hope we all have a great semester! I've been looking forward to working with you.
