So, I am really eager to talk about the end of the novel, and have been planning on talking about the end on Thursday, but if another class or two means more people will be finished and it improves our discussion, I would be in favor of delaying our conversation and talking about something else on Thursday, maybe even a kind of midterm workshop (share ideas in groups and do some kind of activity). What do people think?

    I think that’d be fantastic. I’ve still got plenty of progress to make on the book, and an extra few days would be great.

    I’m all for a group workshop experience. I think it’d be really productive to break into groups of three or so and have every group explore a different thread of the novel and then to come back together as a class and share them all. There’s so much ground to cover.

    I also really like the idea of both pushing back our conversation about the ending for a class or two, and having a group workshop experience for the midterm paper. I feel like that would be very helpful.

    I think the small group discussions could be helpful, especially with the caliber of discussion across the board from everyone. I vote aye for groups.
