This schedule is tentative; we may amend it as the semester progresses, but not in terms of the due dates for assignments, and nothing too heavy. The class website will reflect all changes to the syllabus.

All reading assignments are due on the date listed. The page numbers are in parenthesis. You are also responsible for the NA author introductions and major period introductions.

Remember that Friday is our Internet day and you will be responsible for giving a thoughtful response to a weekly prompt on our class WebBoard. The address is: http://english.asu.edu:8080/~matsunaga
