Note the Early Due Date: by midnight, Wed., Oct. 2nd
As part of your midterm review, I would like for you to post, as a comment to this entry, two key words or important concepts regarding the chapter/reading you’ve been assigned (see below). You are welcome to directly quote from the chapter to explain this concept; however, remember to always put in quotation marks words that you have taken word-for-word from your textbook and include a parenthetical with the page number. This is an individual assignment (you do not need to collaborate with the people also assigned to your chapter), and it is okay if there is some overlap in your selected key words. Ideally, though, you’ll each cover slightly different territory.
Chapter 1: Lee, Laura, and Ernest
Chapter 2: Rachel, Jon, and Mark
Chapter 3: Wil, Brandon, and Allysa M.
Chapter 4: Shelby, Nick, and Crystal
Chapter 7: Arrie, Diana, and Sarah Joy

If you choose to attend class on Wednesday, I will give you time to complete this assignment during class. I invite you to read each others’ comments to this post as a way of studying for your exam, though you are still responsible for material that your peers may not post in their key words/concepts. This assignment is due early (Wednesday night instead of our typical Friday night) so that you can read your peers’ comments and begin studying. Feel free to include any questions you have as you are studying and I will try to answer them in a comment back to the class.
