Greetings Class,

Welcome to ENGL 1302 Week 4.

Beneath you will find TWO schedules. The first is for my MWF classes (PW0 and PW4) and the second TTH classes (S36 and WY4).

Grades for Report 1 are now up on Blackboard. Please look at your grade attempt to read any potential comments.

We will be looking at The Craft of Research (TCOR) Ch. 3 and 4, as well as look at Report 2 and Research Paper Assignment sheets.

Finally, for anyone working on Graphic Novels with superheroes, particularly Superman, here is an interesting Article from The Atlantic to consider:

“The Trouble With SupermanFor decades the Man of Steel has failed to find his groove, thanks to a continual misunderstanding of his strengths.”
