Welcome to Week 6, the last week of our online class. Please note that this is a short week, which ends on Thursday, July 2. Also, be aware that the final quiz will be available from 9:00 a.m. Monday, June 29 through 5:00 p.m.Wednesday, July 1.

I very much enjoyed your varied responses to the vignettes in the first half of The House on Mango Street, and look forward to your comments on the second half of the book. Please be sure to post by Thursday.

I want to congratulate all those who managed to complete this very demanding course. You’ve packed 15 weeks’ worth of reading into a mere 6 weeks! It’s been a pleasure getting to know you in the discussion boards. I wish you continued success in your academic career, and I hope you will enjoy the rest of the summer. If I can be of help to you in the future, please do feel free to reach out.
