This forum is NOW CLOSED ... Saturday, 16 February ...

I hope you did not put off posting until the last minute ...
because you never know when that last minute will be.


This is the portal page for TOPICS related to your reading of Walt Whitman's poetry and prose by Emerson and Thoreau.

This is a bit of Whitman's very own handwriting taken from one of the early notebooks that led to Leaves of Grass. Can you read it?

To create a new topic, below SAMPLE POST, type the name of your topic (under eight words) and surround it with double brackets and three = signs (so it will appear in the Table of Contents here). Then SAVE and click on the link you've made. At that page, create your post.

Remember that once you've made a post you MUST create a link to it on your own student page.


PLEASE NOTE: Rather than having three topics for "I Hear America Singing," why not have just one to which you add your thoughts? Just add your post below the other one(s).

PLEASE REMEMBER: Use HEADING 3 or three = signs (3 front and 3 back) to get the right font-size and place your topic in the Table of Contents.
