Tonight I get to read Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” – & follow it up with a short, 1 or 2 page essay of response to my readings. This is the first of 15 papers I get to write for my CH 202 class. That’s not complaining, mind you, just a little protesting at the meaninglessness of some of the assignments that get thrown the way of the college student. What bugs me is the insistence of “quantity over quality,” & the idea of simply regurgitating the instructors opinions. Oh well, I too can do this. It builds discipline, & even character, so I’ve heard.
