The would-be final drafts for Essay One are starting to roll in now, and most folks are in the latter stages of their work on that essay even as they've finished reading The Shallows and started to explore ideas for Essay Two. Of course there's still one more book to read and write about--M. T. Anderson's Feed--and just as you read The Shallows while you were working on your Cascio essay, you'll be reading Feed while working on your Carr essay (and maybe revising your Cascio essay too). In preparation for reading Anderson's novel, please print "Context-Setting Considerations for Feed" from our Documents section, respond to each question, and bring your responses to class this Friday, 31 Oct. (yep, that would be Halloween). As with the context-setting questions for Carr and Cascio, I'm not asking you to do any kind of big-time research to get the "right" answers to these questions, but rather, simply to give each one a little thought and respond to it as you will. We'll discuss your responses for a while on Friday, and this thought and discussion will help provide a richer context as you begin reading Feed.
