Our next class is Wednesday, Feb 22nd. Your work is here:
For the next few classes, see below. It’s a lot because it’s a month’s worth of stuff, so read it or don’t. I’d take advantage of it but that’s me.

I will re-send these again but those who want can do them earlier.

NO BLOG ASSIGNMENT – INSTEAD… STUDY for…
Exam #1 – Chapters 1-5 from Rodman, and possibly Satire’s Brew Origins Chapter. Everything from the Rodman text is fair game.

Tuesday, March 14th 6:30pm in Ingersoll 2310
MAKE UP CLASS for April 19th – as it says on syllabus.
If you cannot make the class please message your TA ASAP.
The class & work are required but I know you may have WORK (try and switch 🙂 .) If you have class, send your TA a copy of your schedule for the absence, so we can figure out what to do. Your blog work will still be due by 12pm that day.
Our next class will meet on Wednesday, March 15th and discuss Rodman’s FILM chapter at the regular day, time, and location. I will send out a blog assignment after the exam.
Extra Credits: All due on your blog BEFORE Week 13
Remember: Extra credit is earned, not guaranteed.
– A blog post on the Oscars — pick the right ones, have to get 100% correct. Has to be posted BEFORE The Oscars!
– Watch 13th on Netflix — write 1500+ words on it.
– Watch Midnight — write 1500+ words on it.
– More to come!
I think this is enough for now!
Enjoy the weekend and see ya’ll on Wednesday!
