PLEASE NOTE, THE NEW POLICY FOR READER'S NOTES: For the rest of the semester, you will be responsible for reading, listening, watching whatever the assigned material is on your own time outside of class (this will take you anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour). You should take notes in your in-class writing google.doc to help you remember what you read/watch/listen to.
Here is a sample of my notes from the Rosa Parks TED Talk:
Then, in-class, you will write and post to the discussion board. I am making this work due in-class to improve your collective chances at learning how to write about what you are asked to read in a class--I want the focus to be on the learning and not on wether or not you do the assignment. I hope you will see this as the opportunity it is and take advantage of it.
And, keep in mind, the cookie deal is still on the table, even with the new policy.
FOR IN-CLASS ON WEDNESDAY, 14 OCTOBER 2020: Dr. Andy Holman continues as a Professor of History at BSU. For many years, he also served as coach to the BSU hockey team--which is a club sport at BSU. Make note of how Holman uses the history of the sport (the archival information), stories about the current (current at the time) team, and his own perspective on both to write his essay. This is essentially what you are being asked to do for your archival ethnography of BSU.
For today's post, please write about 1) the archival material that Dr. Holman uses 2) the stories he tells about the current team experience and 3) what he learns from both about what it means to be a student/athlete at BSU. Finally, how does reading Dr Holman's experience help you to think about what to write about in your own paper?
