World Literature Survey, Individual Conferences

So, this week was crazy with conferences…. I am utterly exhausted. Today, in lieu of class, I conferenced with my survey students for 15 minutes a piece, mostly about their first essay assignment. I asked everyone to bring in drafts, emphasizing that I could best help if I had something to go on, but only a handful had one. Several brought in outlines and notes, though, so we were able to do something useful. I’m eager to see how these turn out–one student is doing something fascinating with the mobility of emotion in Petrarch’s Rime Sparse. Hooray for the OED!
