I apologize in advance for this blog being shorter than usual. Finals are tomorrow so that means today was "study and don't socialize" day. This was it. Our final lecture! We went over freedom and justice through the eyes of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. Since the reading the night before was pretty straight-forward, the lecture was mostly review. During the discussion section, we quickly went over the abstract ideas of King and Malcolm X. Afterwards, we went over some of the earlier writers and did some mock questions.
In the afternoon, most of our class (including all of us in the Cornell cohort for Freedom & Justice) took advantage of the optional review discussion with Professor Kramnick. This was a time when students can ask Professor Kramnick any clarification questions. After the discussion, it was off to the books. We spent most of our evening studying for our final. Hannon was kind enough to share the packet his discussion group made with the logistics of every writer thus far.
At this point, I feel that I know the fundamentals of each writer. However, the part that worries me the most is the structuring of my writing. Well, I'm going to study some more. After all, some more studying never hurts anyone. At least I don't have to wake up until 8:30 AM instead of 7:30 AM tomorrow. Best of luck to all that are taking finals tomorrow!
