Read Chapter Four MRR and take thorough notes (20 points). You can use whatever note taking system you like: Cornell notes, note cards, sticky notes, annotating, outlining, quiz questions and answers. Just remember that whatever method you use, you need to be able to turn these in. So if you write in the book or put sticky notes in it, you'll need to copy the chapter with those notes on it in order to receive credit. Also, be sure the pages or cards are fastened and not loose. Don't ask me to check off your book during class or accept a wad of post-its. Either of these would result in no credit.
Due Monday, 3/31/14

Also, make use of the summaries you did of each paragraph of the article as you annotated. Remember, though, this is not a freewrite. It is supposed to be an organized, grammatically correct paragraph. Email it to me by class time Monday and bring two hard copies to class.
