Before completing this discussion, be sure to review Learning Unit 1: How Do I Read — Introduction to
Literature and Learning Unit 1: How Do I Read — Literary Theory & Critical Discourse.
Think about your expectations for this course and for literature, in general. How do you define literature? How
is the course defining literature? What about literary theory: Were you surprised to read about literary theory?
Have you heard of it before?
For this discussion post, you’ll want to pretend that you’re going to use Twitter and pretend to send a tweet
about this course. (If you’re not familiar with Twitter, take a look at this website for examples of great novels
turned into tweets).
In 140 characters — NOT words, characters — explain to your Twitter followers what you expect from this
course. Feel free to truncate words, use hashtags, and “Twitter speak” to best present your ideas. You’re only
submitting a tweet, so work to get the most meaning in the fewest letters/characters.
