With the literacy narrative behind us, we’re ready to move fully into our next big project: the annotated bibliography, which will prepare us to write excellent research papers.
- On Monday, I will introduce the four additional articles we will read for the annotated bibliography assignment, and we will discuss how to summarize the key points of an article. Please read pages 111–124 in the Norton Field Guide before you come to class and bring your book with you. You should also bring your copies of “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” and “Our Cluttered Minds.”
- On Wednesday, we will discuss reading strategies and explore the differences between reading for pleasure and reading for research. Please read pages 352–366 in the Norton Field Guide before you come to class.
- On Friday, we will conduct an in-class group analysis activity. I’ll explain more about this activity on Monday and Wednesday, but the important thing is that you come to class in a debating mood.
If you have any questions about these plans, or about anything else related to FSTY 1311, please leave a comment on this post or send me an email.
