If you haven’t already noticed, our class periods are becoming less about lectures/large group discussions and more about you actually applying the concepts during class time. While it may not seem important and it’s tempting to skip class, trust me you will want to be present because every activity has a purpose.
This week you will spend Tuesday’s class in the library and working on your annotated bibliography assignment. Remember each one of your sources must have a correctly formatted MLA citation and two paragraphs. Your first paragraph will be the rhetorical precis and the second paragraph details how you plan to use it in your final research. As a way to make sure you’re actually utilizing the library day, I want each of you to take a picture of yourself in the library with one of your sources for the annotated bibliography. You must submit your picture in your Dropbox folder during actual class time on Tuesday. If you do not submit a picture during the required time frame, you will lose 15 points on your annotated bibliography.
For Thursday’s class, I want you to bring in a piece of popular culture that relates to your topic.
