Class is cancelled for Friday, January 21, 2011.
We can't really afford to miss an entire week of class, so in addition to the assignments for January 21, please read the following essay:
"Politics and the English Language."
Your quiz on January 28 will be over this essay, along with the readings and other assignments for January 21. Please note that "Politics and the English Language" is an older, British essay, and it may be a stretch to follow all of Orwell's prose. It is a classic essay, however, that should repay the hard work of reading and studying.
I hope you enjoy the break and come to class ready to work hard on January 28.
