LIT 225 Dr. Dow Theatrical Reading Guidelines One of the requirements for this course is a brief theatrical reading of a short passage from one of the plays we are studying this semester.

    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.
