In the course of this lab for English 103, I expect you to explain to me why three walls in this classroom are painted mint green and one is painted raspberry. It reminds me of those big plastic buckets with the orange, green, and raspberry sherbet. It makes me hungry. Or maybe I was already hungry because this lab is at lunch time? Possibly, whoever made that executive decision was trying to inject a little bit of whimsy into the, sometimes mundane, world of academia? But I’m inclined to think that this was not the reason. Inquiring minds want to know.
I’m actually not completely serious about that but it would be nice. During a lab I hope to learn things about how to become a better writer. I also hope that the one hour a week is entertaining. And it would be wonderful if I could get a good grade. I don’t really have many specific expectations. The “sound track of your life” sounds like an interesting, creative assignment. I want to learn how to use technology better because it’s not among my stronger skills. I think that’s it.
