No new reading assignment, in honor of Thanksgiving, but be ready to talk about "Solving for Pattern" and Bly's discussion of stage development theory, from last week's assignment. Also, get me your drafts as soon as possible for the bullies and toadies paper. Happy Thanksgiving.
For November 21, please read "A Mother's Tale," 116-136, "Solving for Pattern," 154-163, and Bly's commentary, 165-213. The writing assignment is this: Download file

Two notes for next time, Tuesday, November 7: (1) the paper deadline for this week's paper is extended one week, to November 10, because I have been sick and haven't been able to read drafts quickly; and (2) we will skip the last bit of the DeBotton reading and go direct to Changing the Bully. The assignment is: introduction and pages 3-47, "The Good News about Leaders and Followers." Please read this carefully, more than once.
