<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;COURSE POLICIES.&lt;/b&gt; Please review the &lt;b&gt;<a href="tiki-index.php?page=E222_Policies_Fall_13" title="E222 American Literature Policies, CSU Fullerton Fall 2013" class="wiki wiki_page">Course Policies Page</a>&lt;/b&gt; early in the semester. Key points easily stated here: missing more than 20% of sessions may affect course grade; academic dishonesty may result in course failure. The four evaluative requirements outlined below must be substantially completed to pass the course. Since most assignments will be due by email, it is students' responsibility to contact me promptly if they do not get an email verifying receipt of materials.&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;MAJOR STUDY UNITS AND COURSE OBJECTIVES.&lt;/b&gt; This survey course will cover a selection of American authors from a brief review of Whitman and Dickinson to the post-bellum author Mark Twain to the contemporary playwright and actor Sam Shepard. In sum, the course mainly concerns American literature after the Civil War of 1861-65, and the aim is to offer as broad a perspective as possible on the poetry, drama and fiction of this period, with due attention to relevant historical and social developments. I refrain from superimposing grand narratives (i.e. schemes for claiming that all texts in a given period deal with a particular theme or issue and that such things alone can make them significant or coherent), and prefer to let serendipity guide the emergence of our texts' significance. We will find time along the way to talk about the South, modernism, and post-modernism, but without making those concepts the central fact in our engagement with the readings.&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES.&lt;/b&gt; Lecture, discussion, and possibly a limited number of in-class quizzes, which I may decide to factor in as 5% of the course grade. I encourage questions and comments &mdash; student participation improves any course, broadening its scope and introducing a variety of opinion that wouldn't be available otherwise. My tasks are to lecture concisely, to listen well, to ask good questions, and to help you find out more about our texts. Your tasks are to listen, respond, and develop your own ideas, your own voice, as a reader of literary works.&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;h3 align="center"&gt;&lt;font color="#7800A7"&gt;HOW YOUR PERFORMANCE WILL BE EVALUATED&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;<a href="tiki-index.php?page=E222_Journals_Fall_13" title="E222 American Literature Journal Instructions, CSU Fullerton Fall 2013" class="wiki wiki_page">JOURNALS REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS</a>.&lt;/b&gt; Keep a running journal on your thoughts about the assigned readings. Four separate journal sets will be due by email as specified below in the session schedule. Electronic format required. I will not mark journal sets down unless they are late (maximum grade = B), incomplete, or so brief and derivative as to suggest evasion of intellectual labor: they should consist of honest responses, not "yes-or-no" style answers, quotation of the assigned texts without further comment, or secondary material pasted from Internet sources. &lt;b&gt;&lt;u&gt;How to do well on this assignment&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/b&gt;: read the instructions; complete entries as you go through each text; send sets on time, making sure I verify receipt; respond thoughtfully to the readings: use your own words and refer to the texts' specific language. (35% of course grade.)&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;<a href="tiki-index.php?page=E222_Paper_Fall_13" title="E222 American Literature Term Paper, CSU Fullerton Fall 2013" class="wiki wiki_page">TERM PAPER REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS</a>.&lt;/b&gt; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color="#666"&gt;By the end of Week 13 (Sunday 11/24) a one-paragraph description addressing the general topic &lt;i&gt;and&lt;/i&gt; specific argument of the projected paper will be due by email.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; (Full rough drafts are also encouraged.) Not providing this description on time may affect the final draft grade. Please read the term paper instructions carefully since they contain the general prompt, suggested topics, and advance draft comments. I reserve the right to require proof of the final paper's authenticity, such as notes or an early draft. Final draft (5-7 pages) due as specified towards the bottom of the syllabus page. There is no need to consider this a research paper, though you are free to make it one.

There will be more choices than required responses. Books and notes allowed for all sections, &lt;i&gt;but no laptops&lt;/i&gt;. Students may not share books or notes during the exam. Exam date: see below. &lt;b&gt;&lt;u&gt;How to do well on this assignment&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/b&gt;: read the online prep sheet; take good notes and ask questions/make comments; above all, enjoy the works rather than thinking of them only as test material. If you take pleasure in the assigned texts' language, attend to the sophistication with which they have been structured, and reflect on the value you derive from them, you are likely to earn a good exam grade. (30% of course grade.)&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;COURSE POLICIES.&lt;/b&gt; Please review the &lt;b&gt;<a href="tiki-index.php?page=E222_Policies_Fall_13" title="E222 American Literature Policies, CSU Fullerton Fall 2013" class="wiki wiki_page">Course Policies Page</a>&lt;/b&gt; early in the semester. Key points easily stated here: missing more than 20% of sessions may affect course grade; academic dishonesty may result in course failure. The four evaluative requirements outlined below must be substantially completed to pass the course. Since most assignments will be due by email, it is students' responsibility to contact me promptly if they do not get an email verifying receipt of materials.&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;MAJOR STUDY UNITS AND COURSE OBJECTIVES.&lt;/b&gt; This survey course will cover a selection of American authors from a brief review of Whitman and Dickinson to the post-bellum author Mark Twain to the contemporary playwright and actor Sam Shepard. In sum, the course mainly concerns American literature after the Civil War of 1861-65, and the aim is to offer as broad a perspective as possible on the poetry, drama and fiction of this period, with due attention to relevant historical and social developments. I refrain from superimposing grand narratives (i.e. schemes for claiming that all texts in a given period deal with a particular theme or issue and that such things alone can make them significant or coherent), and prefer to let serendipity guide the emergence of our texts' significance. We will find time along the way to talk about the South, modernism, and post-modernism, but without making those concepts the central fact in our engagement with the readings.&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES.&lt;/b&gt; Lecture, discussion, and possibly a limited number of in-class quizzes, which I may decide to factor in as 5% of the course grade. I encourage questions and comments &mdash; student participation improves any course, broadening its scope and introducing a variety of opinion that wouldn't be available otherwise. My tasks are to lecture concisely, to listen well, to ask good questions, and to help you find out more about our texts. Your tasks are to listen, respond, and develop your own ideas, your own voice, as a reader of literary works.&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;h3 align="center"&gt;&lt;font color="#7800A7"&gt;HOW YOUR PERFORMANCE WILL BE EVALUATED&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;<a href="tiki-index.php?page=E222_Journals_Fall_13" title="E222 American Literature Journal Instructions, CSU Fullerton Fall 2013" class="wiki wiki_page">JOURNALS REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS</a>.&lt;/b&gt; Keep a running journal on your thoughts about the assigned readings. Four separate journal sets will be due by email as specified below in the session schedule. Electronic format required. I will not mark journal sets down unless they are late (maximum grade = B), incomplete, or so brief and derivative as to suggest evasion of intellectual labor: they should consist of honest responses, not "yes-or-no" style answers, quotation of the assigned texts without further comment, or secondary material pasted from Internet sources. &lt;b&gt;&lt;u&gt;How to do well on this assignment&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/b&gt;: read the instructions; complete entries as you go through each text; send sets on time, making sure I verify receipt; respond thoughtfully to the readings: use your own words and refer to the texts' specific language. (35% of course grade.)&lt;/p&gt;

<p> </p>

&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;<a href="tiki-index.php?page=E222_Paper_Fall_13" title="E222 American Literature Term Paper, CSU Fullerton Fall 2013" class="wiki wiki_page">TERM PAPER REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS</a>.&lt;/b&gt; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color="#666"&gt;By the end of Week 13 (Sunday 11/24) a one-paragraph description addressing the general topic &lt;i&gt;and&lt;/i&gt; specific argument of the projected paper will be due by email.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; (Full rough drafts are also encouraged.) Not providing this description on time may affect the final draft grade. Please read the term paper instructions carefully since they contain the general prompt, suggested topics, and advance draft comments. I reserve the right to require proof of the final paper's authenticity, such as notes or an early draft. Final draft (5-7 pages) due as specified towards the bottom of the syllabus page. There is no need to consider this a research paper, though you are free to make it one.

There will be more choices than required responses. Books and notes allowed for all sections, &lt;i&gt;but no laptops&lt;/i&gt;. Students may not share books or notes during the exam. Exam date: see below. &lt;b&gt;&lt;u&gt;How to do well on this assignment&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/b&gt;: read the online prep sheet; take good notes and ask questions/make comments; above all, enjoy the works rather than thinking of them only as test material. If you take pleasure in the assigned texts' language, attend to the sophistication with which they have been structured, and reflect on the value you derive from them, you are likely to earn a good exam grade.
