Our plans for next week are very simple, so this update will be short and sweet. Your Book Reviews are due on Tuesday, so please make sure that a copy of your review is located in your shared Google Drive folder (in Google Docs format) before you come to class. For the following three class periods, we’ll enjoy hearing your individual presentations. Here’s our schedule for Week 9:
- On Tuesday, Jessie, Christina, and Rachel will deliver their presentations.
- On Thursday, Prabin, Britt, and Andrew will deliver their presentations.
A final reminder about your presentations, taken from the assignment guidelines: “There is no strict format for these presentations, so be creative. Do more than just march us through your written review; help us engage with the text in some way. As part of your presentation, create a brief handout (no more than a single page, front and back) for your classmates that will help them understand the book you’ve read and help them determine its potential value for their own research.”
If you have any questions about our plans, or about your individual presentation, please let me know.
