We’re full steam ahead on the semester! Hope you enjoyed Satire’s Brew… because right now there will be a bit more of it.
Please read the “story” section of Lecture 2 and all of the origin story Lecture 3.
As I mentioned — Newspapers & Magazines will be covered this week.
Your blog assignment should have been sent out by your TA — if not, shoot them an email.
Use Satire’s Brew Lecture 3 and the political cartoon to discuss. Should be fun. More info on the blog assignment sheet so take a look.
Exam on 10/6
Your first exam is going to be on chapters 1-4, with chapter 5 being a toss-up. Meaning, I’m giving a quiz on 1 of the 3 readings… Newspapers, Magazines and/or Satire’s Brew Origins. Bring the book because if the Giants win I may allow it to be an open book quiz.
Exam is multiple choice and true/false (A=True, B=False). Please bring a #2 pencil. It is NOT an open book but comes straight from the 4th edition.
After the exam on 10/6, there will be a film screening… it is mandatory you stay for the film and a post will be due two weeks later by 12pm. Don’t forget Snowpiercer is due as well. Two blogs in two weeks. Not so bad. Heavy Sci-Fi bent but could be worse – could be Transformers 8.
That’s about it.
Enjoy the long weekend.
