Instructions for first In-Class Writing Students, The first in-class writing is soon; check the syllabus. Bring your book and the attached poem to class, notes you have made in your journal, paper, blue or black ink pen. You will have the whole class period to do your writing. Choose one of these poems: “Welcome to Hiroshima” OR “My Mother, That Feast of Light” (attachment). The second poem is written by a Florida writer, Kate Barnes. Though we didn’t discuss it in class, it is rich with poetic language that should be relatively easy for you to discuss. The key to success is preparation. If you choose to write about “My Mother, That Feast of Light,” follow the process we used in class with “Welcome to Hiroshima.” If you were absent when we discussed the poem, you can follow the process listed below to help you prepare. 1. Read the poem at least three times. 2. Figure out what literally is going on: who is the speaker, where does it take place, who is in the poem, is it a flashback, when, how, what is the action, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
