Summer and Fall Reading List

I'm taking four graduate classes this summer, after which I'll have only two more classes to take before I graduate. (It seems to take me several tries to make it through a degree program.)

Over the course of the summer, I'll be taking:
  1. ENG 522: Rhetoric and Writing in Professional Communities (professional writing elective; no textbook assigned: all readings are on BlackBoard)
  2. ENG 538: Cross-Cultural Aspects of Language Learning (linguistics elective; no textbook assigned: all readings are on BlackBoard)
  3. ENG 570: Introduction to Multimedia Design (core requirement; textbook: Writer/Designer: A Guide to Making Multimodal Projects)
  4. ENG 599: Rhetorics of Travel Writing (core requirement); no textbook was assigned, but which includes readings from blogs, excerpts from various books, and the occasional video 
The start and end dates are all over the place, so it's a bit difficult to keep everything straight. ENG 599 is the most convenient, since it a four-week class that's held when no other classes are meeting; it began mid-May. The two electives are eight-week classes that started today and end August 5th, while ENG 570 is another four-week class that began today, but ends in early July. June's going to be a busy month.

I'll have two more classes to take after the summer, one of which I'll be taking in the fall: A seven-week class that begins in late October, ENG 610 (Autobiographical Literacies) is a course requirement, and there's some interesting-looking reading involved:
