As requested, here are the reasons I'm taking American Lit II via modem:

1. I need one more lit class to graduate.

2. I just had a baby (seven weeks before the semester began).

3. I am taking a class on campus (a class that I need which is only

being offered at one particular time) but could not arrange to take

a lit class on the same days at a time that I could arrange for

babysitting. Furthermore, my husband's work schedule would not

guarantee he could keep the baby at night on a regular basis.

4. If I didn't take one more class, my membership in Phi Theta Kappa

would be canceled (need minimum 6 hrs per semester).

As you can see, AmLit2 Independent Study was a perfect solution to my

scheduling problems.
