For our first official set of Reader's Notes, you must first listen to the "Wonder Woman" segment of the "Super Powers" episode of the radio program This American Life. You can access that podcast from the syllabus.
NOTE: you don't need to listen to the entire hour long podcast, just the Wonder Woman episode.
Once you've listened to the podcast, review the general requirements of what to do for Reader's Notes. Then post, below, your 300 words, in keeping with the requirements of the assignments, AND, consider what we've been talking about makes a good piece of writing about another person: the details, the facts, the information about that person (evidence) prove what it is the writer wants us to know and believe about the person (thesis). So, in "Wonder Woman," what are all of the things that we learn about the person who is the focus of the story, Zora, from the author Kelly McEvers? And then, what is the big idea--the thesis--the thing that the author want us, ultimately, to understand about Zora?
WARNING: Remember what I said about not writing in cliches. It would be easy, in this story, to come up with a cliche, but I'm telling you ahead of time, Zora and her story are more complicated than it might seem.
