My article "Reading TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and GO SET A WATCHMAN as Palimpsest" has been published here:

Kelley, James. "Reading TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and GO SET A WATCHMAN as Palimpsest" Explicator 74.4 (2016): 236-39.

This article surveys the initial reception of Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman, examines the varying attempts to make sense of the relationship between Go Set a Watchman and To Kill a Mockingbird, and argues that the two works can be viewed as a palimpsest, with the former text lying beneath the first and only recently having been made visible through its publication.

Writing in school can take all sorts of forms and serve all sorts of purpose. There’s...
- formal writing and informal writing
- high-stakes writing and low-stakes writing
- writing as product and writing as process
- writing-to-show-what-you’ve-learned and writing-to-learn
- writing in the disciplines (WID) and writing across the curriculum (WAC)

Criteria for evaluating internet sources: The following criteria are listed in order of relative importance, beginning with the most important. Did I leave anything out? (We covered this material in the afternoon session on 6/8/16.)

Author: Who wrote this material? What are this person’s credentials?

Affiliation: Which organization is behind this information? Which organization houses this information on their website or server? (parse the URL; truncate the URL to locate the organization)

Consistency or corroboration: How well does the information presented in this source match information presented in other, independent sources?

Objectivity: Is the source objective, or does it appear biased? Is there a reason the source presents a particular point of view on a topic?

Currency: How recent is this information?

Commercial purpose: Does the page contain advertising? Is there a relationship between the advertising and the content in the source? (If you answer yes to the second question, this internet source may simply be filler material between clickable advertisements.)

Appearance: How professional does the website look? (researched, supported by a bibliography? free of typing errors and stylistic errors?)


Let me know if you have anything to add!
