WELCOME to my class! I look forward to meeting you soon. I will be presenting the course briefly and answering your questions on Monday, October 2nd at 7 pm. This is the permanent Zoom link to my classes:
If you cannot attend this brief presentation (which will last about 30 minutes), feel free to write me an email at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis semester, we will be reading Civil Disobedience by H.D. Thoreau, followed by a few pages from Richard Powers's prize-winning novel, The Overstory, and finally a few pages from Walden.
I posted the edited text of Civil Disobedience and the questions, as well as a file with the answers to the questions. The idea is for you to read the extracts, try to answer the questions (whose aim is to guide you through the text) and to read the suggested answers.
There will be two Zoom classes:
- the first one on Monday, October 16th from 6.00 to 8.00
- the second one on Monday, December 4th from 6.00 to 8.00
If you are interested in attending the Zoom sessions, but the days and times do not suit you, let me know, I am sure we can find a solution that suits all those students who are interested.
I have also posted the text and Questions & Answers for The Overstory and Walden.
