Ha! I'd say most of them didn't even have enough understanding of Modernism to do that
The class was more about showing them there's more than the five-paragraph essay and writing can actually be fun, especially when you get to pick your own topic.
I even had a few students come to me at the end and say thanks to how I taught the subject, they planned to switch to a major in English... I made sure, before they switched, they understood the standard pay with a major in English
I was always a bit partial to postmodernism... Playing with that existential uncertainty. Using it to create all sorts of fun, silly, nonlinear, spastic things. Now excuse me while I kiss an Oompa Loompa
