ENGL 352 Modern American Literature

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 1 month ago

This Wiki page is an experiment for my Modern American Literature class.  We are going to be compiling an encyclopedia of terms, movements, and writers associated with modern American literature and with modernism more broadly. Because this page is also serving as a kind of home page for the entire assignment, I will eventually create a separate page devoted to the class project.  This separate page will include the various links to your individual encyclopedia entries.

 

 

T.S. Eliot Makeup--(DUE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28th)--Due to some family health issues I'm going to have to miss class today.  You should attend class.  My assistant, Gina Hale, will show the rest of the T.S. Eliot Video.  In addition, complete a short interactive writing assignment about the video using the Assignment page I've set up on our wiki.  Visit TS Eliot Makeup for more information.

 

Fifth Assignment (Due Friday, March 16)--Edit the pages of at least three other people.  Your edits may be global, approaching the topic in a radically different way.  They may also be minor: changing sentence structure, grammar, etcetera.  Or somewhere inbetween.  I would encourage you to be bold.  Think about how you would rewrite an entry, what information you would like to see.

 

Fourth Assignment (Due Friday, February 23rd)--Enter the first paragraph or so of your encyclopedia entry on your entry page.  Realize that this can be very rough draft.  We're using wiki as a collaborative online editing system, so just get something out there and we'll work on it collectively. Even at this stage make appropriate citations of things you've had to research, so every page ought to have a Works Cited Section. Link to things where possible.

 

 

 

 

Third Assignment (Due Friday, February16th)--Logon to our wiki and create a new page devoted to the subject you identified earlier in the semester.  On that page include at a minimum a title with your subject and a line that says "Back to Encyclopedia Home page."  Link this line to the Encyclopedia of Modern American Literature home page.  Secondly, open the Encyclopedia  home page and edit it to include a link to your newly created page.

 

Second Assignment (Due Friday, February 9th)--Using a search engine, visit at least three different websites that have something to do with modernism or modern American literature.  Take note of any terms with which you are unfamiliar, writers whom you you have never read, or movements that you are uncertain how to define.  Link to our Encyclopedia of Modern American Literature home page. Log in using the password that I will provide for you.  Edit the Encyclopedia page page by adding a term, name or movement to the list below.  As you edit, add things in alphabetical order.  If you see someone else has things out of alphabetical order, correct the problem for the class.  Be ready to talk in class about one thing you learned regarding our class topic.

 

 

 

First Assignment (Due Wednesday, February 7th)--Read the introduction to the Norton Anthology and review the timeline (pages 1071-1086).  Take note of any terms with which you are unfamiliar, writers whom you have never read, or movements that you are uncertain how to define.  Log in to our wiki page using the password that I will provide for you.  Edit this page by adding a term, name or movement to the list below.  I've gotten things started with the movement known as "dadaism."  As you edit, add things in alphabetical order.  If you see someone else has things out of alphabetical order, correct the problem for the class.
