25 Jan

Was wonderful seeing you all the other day.  Please be ready for next week, as we’ll begin to develop topics for sakes of longer papers.. we’ll also be talking about matters away from the texts.  Why?  To dissect issues, be prepared to vocalize our insight.

This class, whether English 5 or 100, is meant to show you that YOU, the writer/reader/student/Human, have words and thoughts that deserve appreciation.  That deserve readerships.  And as it is that we’re all writing a story this semester, it’s ever more needed that you fear nothing– that you civilly offer your ideas to your colleagues.

Please understand, and believe me, when I write:  I am here.  For.  You.  That’s it.  I want you to grow and be emboldened by your own ideas.  Yes, we’ll work on mechanics, fundamentals, essay organization…  But before we can do that, you have to have ideas.  Your ideas.  And I am here for you, as are your colleagues.

On a note to just the side:  Let me read your journals!  Show how your using them, that you’re contributing meaningful and useful content, for your benefit!  The journal is a beautiful thing I and my past students have found.  Show me what you’ve written, and I’ll log some Attendance & Activity points into the “gradebook” (ugh, hate that word).

In any light, thank you all again, and see you in the week that approaches.

Loyally Yours,

Mike
