This schedule is subject to change as we work our way through the course. We may wish to spend more time on some texts, and less on others. “TBA” indicates areas where we may wish to add texts. Also, in addition to the texts, there will be writing instruction each class, including grammar, essay structure, and style.

It is your responsibility to be prepared for the week's readings.
