1. Working bibliography due Tuesday, March 15th.
2. Reflection paper due Thursday, March 17th. I have added two examples of reflection papers to our wiki.
Click on the "Poetry Unit" and then click on the "Research Paper" you'll see a student example (analyzing several poems of
Mary Oliver) and a reflection I wrote in graduate school (analyzing one poem of Larry Levis'). This will give you a sampling of how to
possibly organize your reflections
