Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall Room 202. The class roster listed seventeen students, one fewer than at the previous class meeting. Fifteen attended.
Formal discussion opened with comments about student grades on the recently returned abstract and the institution's six-week report. It moved from that to discussion of Malory and Le Morte d'Arthur. Students were asked to conduct most discussion of Le Morte d'Arthur as literature in the online discussions, leaving class time available for discussion of contexts and paratextual concerns.
Attendance was assessed via the kind of quiz from which the first section of the final exam will be taken. Students are encouraged to continue to attend closely to the details of readings and historical contexts.
