Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall Room 202. The class roster listed twenty students, unchanged from last class meeting. Fifteen attended.
Discussion opened with questions after student work on the research paper, the abstract of which is due on Valentine's Day. Afterwards, the answers to Monday's quiz and a reminder that the first section of the summative exam will be taken from the quizzes given throughout the term were offered. Discussion continued with comments about the medieval romance and the Breton lai before moving into specific discussion of Marie de France and her works. Attendance was taken via an overly brief informal writing exercise.
Students are reminded to keep abreast of the assigned readings and discussion board postings as well as their ongoing research projects.
