CC 223 : Reflections
Introduction Guidelines Schedule

Reflections help students gather their thoughts in preparation for in-class discussion of plays.

Below are links to preliminary questions on plays on the CC 223 reading list. Answers are due by noon on the day of discussion, and count toward the class participation grade.




Each question requires a thoughtful paragraph (6-10 sentences) in response. It is recommended that students compose answers in a word procressing program -- from the nimble Notepad to the lumbering MS Word -- and paste them into the appropriate box.

The questions are opinion-oriented, which means that they ask for students' intrepretations of the text. As such, there are no right or wrong answers;  nevertheless, assertions should be supported with evidence from the play (quotation, verse numbers) where appropriate.

Hit the "Submit" button to send reflections to Professor Curley; to receive a copy by email, be sure to include your Skidmore email address in the appropriate box.

Professor Curley will review all reflections and use them to facilitate in-class discussion. Students should expect to be recognized in class for their responses -- that is, for answers to be read aloud and attributed to their respective authors.

Almost all reflections on our readings are due at 12:00 noon on the dates listed below. Late submissions will not be processed after that time -- no exceptions. NOTE: The time is taken from the Skidmore server, not your computer's internal clock, your cell phone, or your wristwatch. Students are therefore advised not to wait until the last minute to submit reflections.

Please email Professor Curley with any technical difficulties.
