In this position it is pretty common to get asked the same question multiple times, so you get used to it pretty fast. It's acutally nice here, because I don't have to retype everything, just copy and paste.

I'm not positive on this point but I believe it is used mostly for the discussion, though I know they try to incorporate the common reading more into the seminars in recent years. The professor leading the discussion gets a copy of everyone's papers. I think it is basically to make sure that people actually read the book and can contribute to the discussion. Also, this year a committee will select the 3 best essays and the winners get $50 to the bookstore

Hey All! I just finished reading Kite Runner and I actually really enjoyed it and found it really fascinating. I was just wondering what we should focus on when writing the response? Is there anything that we should directly answer or is is basically just a free write? I don't know if anybody knows the answer to that I prob should go back to the packet that was sent to us. Anyways I am actually really happy Drew assigned us Kite Runner because I think everyone should have to read it at some point in their life.

Pretty close to a free write, just so long as you stay away from simply writing a summary.

Hey everyone. i'm about halfway through The Kite Runner and I was just wondering.. is it ok to focus on one particular aspect of the book or should it be more of a general reflection on the entire thing?
