Met with Julie Larios (my advisor) and the 4 other students under her care. We discussed Julie's expectations and what the "packets" of work (4 in total, sent out by email every 4 weeks) should contain.
*I was told it would take approx. 25hrs/week to complete the work for these packets (I believe it!)
Lecture #1 - Jane Kurtz: Lively talk about the element of surprise across kid lit genres.
