write and hand in three two- or three-page inquiry papers
You are required to write and hand in three two- or three-page inquiry papers on any of the texts
we study this semester. These papers are important because they are your opportunity to explore
your own ideas about the texts while contributing to our collective understanding of the
literature. An inquiry paper explores one or two questions, observations, or problems that emerge
as you read the novel. It is not a summary, nor is it a journal; rather, it is a focused response
paper. Unless I say otherwise, each paper will be due via Blackboard in the week or weeks that
we are studying the text you are writing about, not after we have moved on to the next text.
