As You Like It video lecture

Hi, everyone!

The link to this week’s video lecture on Shakespeare’s play As You Like It is available below. Please keep in mind that we’ll have our first group presentation this Wednesday. To best support your classmates, make sure to read the play and take notes on questions and/or topics you find interesting. The first presentation group will lead conversation, but it is our job to support them by being an engaged, prepared audience.

Video lecture on Essay #2

Hi, everyone!

This week, I’m doing something different with the video lecture. Due to recent queries voiced by your classmates, I thought it best to devote time to talking about writing. This video lecture focuses on writing the argumentative thesis, which is a key component of essay 2, due November 5.

We will discuss our readings as usual on Wednesday, but we will do so with an eye toward preparing for your upcoming essays. Please put some thought toward what you might want to write about, if you haven’t already, and do take a look at the guidelines for the assignment.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Gilgamesh video lecture part 2

Hi everyone,

Here’s the second half to our Gilgamesh video lecture. You can find the first part posted here. Because there are two parts, you are not required to finish watching this video today. Try to finish both Gilgamesh lectures by next Monday, when we’ll complete Gilgamesh and begin prepping for Antigone.
