“You’re not Steve,” was the first thing the students told me as I walked to the front of the classroom. It’s true, Steve’s their teacher, but so am I. The semester was off just like every other one in China with questions about the teaching schedule and textbooks. All the questions have been answered (btw, the textbook was correct too) and the semester has begun here at Harbin Engineering University. This year I’m tag-team teaching Senior students American Literature with Steve and Robin. We are examining famous works of American Literature through the lens of modernization with the hope of truly determining if becoming modern is all it’s cracked up to be. Please remember the students as they begin their final year of studies here; ask for open hearts and minds as we challenge old ideas and share good news.
