I have posted a couple blogs discussing the assignments of the class, how it was helpful to me, or how much of a pain in the ass the assignments were. But I don’t know if I actually posted anything on what I thought about the class, other than really enjoying it. If this seems monotonous, I’m sorry, but I got one more blog to go and what better way than to describe this class?
First, of all I am going to miss the “lively” discussions we would have in class. Mostly Isaac’s commentary or Rebecca’s obvious disdain for most of what we were reading. Also Foley for wanting as many of us to take part in the discussions, which most of us did not. Also hoping that Foley wouldn’t call on us in class to speak, I know that was me practically everyday.
Second, I am going to miss the funny facebook status postings Foley would share with us. Funny and made for an interesting intro to our class. Also the videos or other postings that Foley or someone else would share before class started. I honestly don’t know where some people come up with those videos, but they get quite a laugh. I liked the way those videos segued into our class discussions, after which no one, but Isaac and Rebecca, spoke.
Third, I am going to miss Foley’s sarcasm. I have had funny professors before. Those who tried to be funny, and those who did not realize they were being funny. Foley is definitely one of those teachers who doesn’t try to be funny, but is extremely funny with all the sarcasm. THanks Foley. And our class was filled with lots of people with the same kind of sarcasm, so it all worked well.
Last, I am going to miss the constant reminder of HP. I feel this semester I was up to my ears in HP. With being in the class and then the release of the latest movie, I feel like I was immersed in HP. Probably a little too much, but it was good to get through it.
So thanks again the Rhetoric of Harry Potter… thanks class and thanks Foley! It was a trip worthwhile! Have a good break and hopefully we’ll all see each other again… if not, keep up with your blogs! :)
