ModPo update for Thursday of week 8, 2018
Got ten minutes tonight? Terrific! Please click HERE and review some essays!
Below, in particular, are six essays on Eileen Myles’s “The Honey Bear” that could use a few more reviews/responses. Please click on at least one of these links, read your ModPo colleague’s essay and offer a comment. Thank you so much for making ModPo’s (famous among MOOCs) peer review approach such a generous collaborative project!
