So, one of the assignments I rewrote more or less completely this semester was the overview post for Indian Epics, making it just a free-form open-ended thing, but with lots of prompts to try to help people imagine connections between what we will be reading in the class and what they might be interested in, even if they might never have heard of the Ramayana or the Mahabharata. It is working so much better this time! I am hoping it is giving them some forward momentum as they start reading the Ramayana next week, and it is so useful for me to hear what kinds of things people are interested in! This assignment is one due today so there will be lots more of these posts going up tonight; I am looking forward to seeing them! :-)
