Extra Credit Option 1:
Up to 2 points towards your lowest exam grade (of the 3 included for you grade).
Please submit a two paragraph summary based one of Shenk’s chapters. My intention here is to see if you read the book and that you can relate it to your own existing schema/knowledge—not a cut/paste of a summary online. You are to relate the chapter to your own experiences and thoughts.
For example, as you read SHENK—I want you to think about how the material you’ve learned in one of his chapters and what in particular was the interesting knowledge gained in the chapter? How has this knowledge you’ve learned (of material covered in the chapter) led to the kinds of thinking within yourself, and/or the kinds of conversations that has occurred outside of the classroom. Has this new knowledge crept its way into your everyday conversations at work? With a friend/family, while in your thoughts in the subway? Or another class? Or to a reinterpretation and reorganization of your experiences and knowledge? You can also point out the way in which your understanding of nature x nurture has changed as a result of what you’ve read. Post on your thoughts on OpenLab student site.
