HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS 

Due Monday, 4/20/15

--Complete the MRL Reading Skills "Highlighting and Note Taking" module. It's near the end, so scroll down to find it. You should do the same parts of the assignment you did for summarizing: overview, model, recall, two practices and the post-test at 70% or higher.

 

Due Friday, 4/17/15

--Compose a summary (one paragraph) of "My Black Skin Makes My White Coat Vanish." For guidance, use the checklist handout as a reminder of what information the summary should include and how it should be put together. It might also help to use the final draft summary sample of "Women Play the Roles..." from the handout where you compared the rough summary to the final version. You can even model yours on the sample final draft. Remember that this is supposed to be written as a paragraph in complete, grammatical sentences. It's not a bullet-pointed list, and it is not a freewrite. You need to double space this when you type it. The best way to do that is to highlight it and hold the control key and the #2 at the same time. DO NOT double space by hitting ENTER at the end of every line. That will goof up your formatting when you go back into this to rewrite later.

Print out TWO copies of the summary and bring both to class. It MUST be typed.

FYI - For Monday, you need to do MRL Reading Skills "Highlighting and Note Taking" module. It's near the end , so scroll down to find it. You should do the same parts of the assignment you did for summarizing.

Making Reading Relevant – Chapter One Assignment / Part One

Read Chapter One in your book (pp. 1-22). Read it as you would if you knew you were  being quizzed on it on Monday. Depending on your approach to such an assignment, complete one of the following:

1) If you have a step-by-step process for doing this type of reading, explain it. As you read, pay attention to anything you do to help you figure out what to focus on, and note whatever strategies you use. Consider whether you do anything before, during or after you read to make it easier to remember important information for the quiz. Keep a list of any steps you take throughout the process of reading the chapter. Write this on a sheet to turn in.

2) If you don’t take any steps, be honest about that. In that case, write a brief paragraph explaining your approach or lack of one. Do you realize it might help to do something rather than nothing? If so, why don’t you? Have you tried and not succeeded in the past? Do you not know what you should do? Are you not convinced that it’s worth it? Explain.
