This is the course website for English 213, Section A, taught by Quinn Warnick at Iowa State University during fall 2008. Please refer to the policy document, found at the top of the center column, for more information about this class. Updates to the syllabus will be posted to this site one week in advance, and any changes to the readings and/or assignments will be reflected in the summaries for each week.
To get started, each of you should start a new discussion topic and label it with your name and mix title. For instance, my post would be labeled as follows:
Quinn Warnick -- Take Two: New Twists on Old Favorites
Inside the body of the post, create a link to your 8tracks.com mix, then paste a copy of your playlist. This will help the other members of the class identify your mix. If you choose, you can say anything else you'd like about your mix.
After you've listened to each of your classmates' mixes, add a comment to the the forum topic for that mix. These comments don't need to be strictly academic (in other words, you should feel free to discuss what you thought of the music and whether or not you liked it), but they should be respectful. By the end of the semester, you will have received several different "reviews" of your mix tape.
