1. Look first in the bibliography in the course packet (9-14) for an article or section or chapter of a book that looks interesting. [Photocopy or make a PDF file of the article or section.] Make sure your source is credible (i.e., edited)—like those in the bibliography in the packet or other essays not on the syllabus. [For example, find writings by Thoreau or Mary Austin or Gary Snyder or Annie Dillard that we do not read in class.] If you find a source online, make sure it is credible (edited). If you are wondering about an online source, clear it with me first. Find 1-3 other members in the class who will be presenting different articles on the same general topic, and brainstorm how you might give a collaborative presentation. 2. Read and take extensive notes, looking up jargon words if necessary. 3. Write a summary / handout (1-2 pages) containing the following information: a) State as clearly as you can the thesis or main idea of the article or section of a book; b) State the dominant ideas of the article or section, noting the ways that they relate to the thesis; c) Discuss interesting, quirky, and astounding facts, quotes, and ideas; d) Explain terminology unfamiliar to your audience; e) Critique anecdotes, facts, and ideas that you found convincing or not—say why you think as you do; f) Relate anecdotes, facts, and ideas in the article to topics and readings we cover in the course.
I will relate it to s article from the course in the end like it said do. This needs to be a two page paper with a handout after that. I was thinkinng for the handout I could give them the thinngs about fishing and talk about what is good with that for my ten minute talk in front of class.
