For this class-substitute exercise, I simply want us to make some connections across texts. So follow one of these options:
A) If you were not part of the discussion on Monday that talked about Gloria Anzaldúa’s excerpt, leave a short comment here pointing to something that struck you about her essay. Then, come to class Thursday ready to make a connection to Fun Home.
B) If you are not going to attend class Thursday to talk about José Muñoz’s excerpt in class, leave a short comment here pointing to something that struck you about his essay. Then, make a connection to Fun Home. How do you see his work about futurity at play in our novel?
C) If you participate in both Monday and Thursday’s classes, no need to leave a comment 🙂
As we are Zooming our way through these first few weeks of class, it might be quite useful for us to all add pronouns to our Zoom names. To do so, hover over your video image when in a session. When the blue box with three dots appears, click that and follow to Rename. Once there, you will want to edit Display Name. Don’t forget to hit OK!
Or, if you are not in session, open your app and click on the home icon/tab at the top, then click the settings cog image in the right corner. From there, click Profile, the Edit My Profile, and finally the Edit button near your name. Then you can change the display name to include pronouns. Don’t forget to Save Changes before you leave!
On your index card please write:
- Your name
- Your preferred pronouns
- Email address
- Something interesting about yourself/fun fact (something to help me with names)
