Friday, February 28: All journal entries written so far due; last lit devices of February due
Jay Wright’s “The End of an Ethnic Dream”:

Read (annotate, w/journal entry) “The Guest” for tomorrow’s class.
For homework, read and annotate “The Great New American Slavery Project.” Be prepared to discuss it on Thursday (not Wednesday).
Today in class, we looked over “On the Abolition of the English Department” and discussed the Western literary canon. We then examined the seminal poem “Friday” by Rebecca Black, examining the basics of poetry critique. For tomorrow, you need to come to class prepared with the name of one poetic ancestor and a brief (1 minute) explanation of why this person is your poetic ancestor.
Read the article for tomorrow & write a journal entry: two lucky people will be called upon to read their journal entries!
