ENG 20: To kick off October we will be reading the short story “The Damned Thing” by Ambrose Bierce. Bierce was an author at the same time as one of my favorite madmen, H.P. Lovecraft. You can find out more about Lovecraft and listen to some terrific Horror podcasts here:
Here is the full audio of The Damned Thing (18 minutes). The selection is in natural English and is therefore a bit different from your text. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwf_jS0x5FY

ENG 10: This week we will do a bit of creative writing in honor of Halloween as well as look at a presentation about argumentative essays. Being able to compose an argument in favor of a researched opinion is perhaps one of the most valued skills for university students. Though I do not personally believe argument is always a necessity, it is the foundation of evaluating student learning in American universities.
