Read through the letters and take a peak at these letters in all their 1890 glory. You may struggle a little with the language--because people spoke and wrote very differently then--but I think you'll get the gist of it.
In your Reader's Notes, try to identify ways that this situation, while seemingly feeling like something that would never happen today, feels familiar. What would be the 2020 version of this kind of scandal at BSU? Can you imagine anything like this happening on our campus today? And how would it go down? What does it say about how things have changed or not changed in terms of how the role and place of women in our society?
Remember, you have 250-300 words. You can do this. If you are struggling to get to 250 words, there are a lot of ideas for how to get to that number (which is really not a lot) in the Reader's Notes,assignment page.
HOW TO POST
- Click on the "comments" button at the top right of your screen or click on "reply" on the bottom left of your screen.
- Fill in the information they ask from you (name and email address)
- Use the dialogue box to post your response. I suggest writing your post in word or a google doc and cutting and pasting into the blog post dialogue box so you don't lose anything and, also, so you have the chance to read and revise what you've written before it goes live.
- Click the "send" button and you are done.
NOTE: If you have trouble posting because it asks you to click on a bunch of pictures, please let me know. The only way to fix this is to contact Weebly directly on my end.
