Introduction



Hello class!

This blog has been created in order to allow each of you to express your thoughts and feelings about Tuesdays with Morrie.

Tuesdays with Morrie captures Professor Morrie Schwartz's reflections on life during his bout with ALS. Morrie paints a clear picture of how he believes life should be lived while demonstrating how to make peace with death and accept it.

Each week you will be expected to post something on this blog about what you have read.

There are only 3 requirements:

  • Each week, I will post a discussion question based on the chapter we are reading in class. I expect you to respond to this post with a post of your own.
  • I am not so much worried about length as I am with the post itself. Your post should be insightful and answer the discussion question to the best of your ability.
  • Your responses should not be made up in order to fulfill the requirement, but an honest reflection. I don't care if you write that you disagree with something in the novel, as long as you are honest about it and articulate why.

Every Thursday, we will review the class posts from throughout the week and have a discussion based on what you have written.

I want this blog to be a useful tool in fueling discussions and debates abotu various themes and lessons in the novel, but it will only be as successful as you make it. With that in mind, happy blogging!
