I got the grade back on my Ghost World presentation! I did the presentation yesterday. It was a 20 minute literary discussion on one chapter of the graphic novel, then we watched the film, and we concluded with a 20 minute discussion of the adaptation from page to screen. Everyone was enthusiastic about the topic, and few people had any experience with graphic novels, so it was a fruitful discussion and I got to show off a bit. The prof talked to me after class about his new interest in the topic thanks to my response papers I've been writing and my presentation. Today he took it upon himself to tell the entire class about his new interest in graphic novels thanks to yours truly.
Can we say "recommendation letter?"
Say it together now!
In the end, I got an A+ on the presentation. I never realized there would still be A+'s in grad school, but I think I can certainly respect and accept that grade.
