Hi everyone,

The assignment for next Thursday, Thought Question 1, is now up on the front page of the website. It involves some of the reading on hip hop I’d asked you to do this past week. Thought questions are writing assignments that are still relatively low stakes: I am interested in what you think and the quality of your argument and thoughts. There is no right or wrong answer. The best papers will not only answer questions or make suggestions, but will expand on them with specifics and examples. I will be away this weekend but will be back Sunday, and will answer any questions you have then.
