Course feedback welcome: We'd appreciate your frank and fair impressions, comments and suggestions for the course to help us make it better. You can download the evaluation form, fill it out digitally or in writing, and mail it back to acharn Puckpan with someone else's e-account to keep your anonymity or put the print out in the brown envelope in acharn Puckpan's box at the end of the hall past her BRK 1106 office. On the online CU-CAS evaluation, students originally in section 5, please evaluate acharn Tapanat first, then if you also want to comment on another instructor, write in the optional further comments section. Thanks very much for a stimulating semester. It's been fun working with you all.


Midterm Marks: All sections click here to see how you did on the midterm. Marks are identified by student ID in ascending order. Scroll to the last line for the course mean of each question and the total and percentage.


Lit Lunch happens every Monday. All are welcome to bring lunch and come chat about literature and anything else during the noon hour in the Arts cafeteria. Look for a table near the teacher's tables with the "Lit Lunch" sign on it.

  • Attendance and Participation: Discussion of the texts will be a big part of this class and students are encouraged to express their opinions, share observations and ask questions. Come prepared to discuss the reading material.
