Say hello to your new blog!
Aw, Anne Hathaway, don't be upset that you can't participate in our discussions. You just aren't legit enough to be in Ms. Kovel's Honors American Lit class.
The rest of you, however, in the comments section, must post a coherent, strong, and well-developed welcome to the class. Some topics to pose might be what you are most looking forward to in Honors American Literature and Composition, what your potential fears for the course might be, the best piece of prose you have recently read (minus your stellar summer reading books), or how you view reading and writing in the real world vs. school reading and writing. After looking over the syllabus, feel free to spark a discussion about the proposed topics for themes, etc.
Once you have made your initial comment, you are not finished. Come back and comment on someone else's comment. Spark a discussion. This may feel strange and uncomfortable initially, but the best things in life often are. Also, this is a huge part of the class, so best to get it done and do it well.
