- For Thoreau, what does it mean to be wild? And for Dillard? How does your own definition and way of knowing compare to each of theirs? (300 word minimum).
- By Saturday, set up your own WordPress.com blog, post your “What Does it Mean to Be Wild” writing invite and email me (email@example.com) the url. It should be something like “http://whateveryounameyourblog.wordpress.com”. I will then post all of your blog links to the course blog.
- Between Sunday and Tuesday at midnight, go to the course blog and click on two (2) classmate’s names to read and respond (100-200 words) to their posts. Respond to their ideas, experiences, etc. rather than conventions of the writing, but feel free to agree, disagree, question, or make connections.
