I signed up for an online lit class on Coursera: "Fantasy and Science Fiction: the Human Mind, Our Modern World." Have you heard of this thing, Coursera? It's pretty neat. My particular class is being taught by a U of Michigan professor. Yesterday, we submitted our first essays. The way grading works–because it's free for now and a bajillion people are taking the class–is that everything is reviewed by a group of your peers. So today I read five little essays on the Brothers Grimm's "Household Stories". Some were awful and one was GREAT, as you might expect. Mine was ok, I think.
