25 february 2022: snow day post
This is an optional post because class has been canceled due to the snow day.
I love a snow day. I really do. And we've had three of them--all of which have interfered with our class. I can not force you to participate in this post, but I want to encourage all of you to post to this discussion board sometime tomorrow. If you post, I will count it as an extra credit reading journal, giving you another opportunity to make up for either an absence over the limit or a reading journal that you did not turn in or that was a "u" for unacceptable.
WHAT TO POST: Hopefully, you've located at least one thoughtful source for your project (that was the assignment as listed on the syllabus). Read that source and post the following:
1. a citation for the source. It doesn't have to be perfect, but information enough so that I could find it if I needed to.
2. A 100-200 word summary of the argument for the source. USE YOUR REPORTING VERBS to summarize.
3. 100-200 words on why you think this is a good source.
This is a version of what I'm asking you to fill out for the annotated bibliography worksheets. Which means if you do this one, you'll only have four more that you are required to do. It really will help you get this work done.
I am posting this information here, on the syllabus, am going to email it to all of you in the hopes that you'll look at one of these spots for information related to our class.
Stay cozy and get to work.
