Message #1: to certain members of my seminar class
Just because this is a class about poetry doesn't mean that you should feel free to email your reading responses with no capitalization and little paragraphing. In fact, I just put those emails in the trash.
Message #2: to my students
You don't know it yet, but I'm going to yell at you tomorrow for not revising your essays between receiving peer reviews and handing in a so-called "revision" to me.
And I really don't feel like discussing the reading I've assigned.
