For your Annotated Bibliography due Monday…

For your Annotated Bibliography due Monday (and worth 10% of your final grade for the class), make sure to follow the Annotated Bibliography assignment sheet (NOT the earlier Annotated Bibliography Worksheet you guys did earlier as a homework assignment)!

The assignment sheet is also posted under “Assignments” here on our Open Lab course site.

Let me know if you have any questions, and see you Monday!

Remember that tomorrow we meet in front of the library!

See you at 8:30 on the fourth floor of the Atrium building, in front of the library doors. If you don’t see us there, we’ve probably already gone inside the library doors, or up to the classroom on the second floor of the library, where our research tutorial will be held. (If that’s the case, do join us, but quietly.)

Thanks!

Your homework for Monday…

…as I mentioned today (and as it says on the Syllabus uploaded here on Open Lab) is:

Write a paragraph about the message of a song. Choose any song you’d like (so long as it’s not “Maybe” or “The Message”). And make sure to bring in the lyrics. (I know printing is often not the easiest, but if you were to come with enough hard-copies of your song’s lyrics for everyone in the class–that’s 24 people including me–this would make me the happiest of all the world’s professors.)

Also, you should be aware (and, again, this is on the Syllabus uploaded to this course site) that your outline for Essay #2 is due this coming Wednesday.

Finally, there is a small handful of students who have not yet handed in the final draft of their Essay #1. Monday is the last day I will accept these from you. Your grade will be lowered due to lateness, of course, but that is much better than receiving a zero. Essay #1 is worth 15% of your final grade for the semester, remember–so you do not want a zero on Essay #1 if your hope is to pass this class.

Have a great rest of your week, and see you guys Monday.

For this Monday (11/3)

Hello everyone,

Thanks for bearing with me while I was under the weather today! Here are the assignments for Monday:

A.  2 Paragraphs (may be handwritten): 1) one paragraph arguing that the homeless people should be forcibly evicted from the subway tunnels, and 2) one paragraph arguing that the homeless people should be allowed to stay in the tunnels. Make sure to incorporate at least one quote from Dark Days in each paragraph.

B. ¬†Also, finish your¬†Dark Days Quotation Exercise sheets if you haven’t already– I’ll be collecting them first thing Monday.

The list of¬†Dark Days¬†quotes and the Quotation Exercise handout are both uploaded under “Assignments,” if you need those again.

And have a wonderful weekend.
