Read the course policy statement completely. Write down any questions you have, then bring the course policy statement & your questions back to class. There will be a quiz (but I don’t try to trick you! Just read the policy statement and you’ll be fine!)
Fill out the Welcome sheet you received in class & turn it back in on Thursday.
Read Wendell Berry’s essay, “In Defense of Literacy.” On Thursday in class, we’ll use Berry’s essay to discuss the value of taking a writing course at a Bible college, but for now, I just want you to mark up the text: underline, write in the margins, leave asterisks – any markings that will help you understand and respond to the text. Bring the essay back to class on Thursday.
