In the Short Story class, we will read – guess what? – short stories. We will read, think about, and talk about interesting stories by Baldwin, Capote, Hemingway, Tan, O’Brien, Walker, Jackson, and others. This course is particularly useful for students in all majors because the focus is on interpretive reading and analysis, two skills used in every major and in most every profession. If you wish to do better in your major field – be it nursing, engineering, or history – this is a fine course to take.
Lemmond has been doing this for a long time. Probably the main thing, maybe the only thing, a prospective student needs to know about Lemmond is that he really, really enjoys teaching this course, but he won’t provide a picture of himself because he doesn’t wish to scare anyone away from taking the course.
Prof. Lemmond is teaching:
- The Short Story, ENGL233, CRN 20600
- It’s a late-starting class
You can find him:
- on the Rockville campus
