List of Additional Readings for Article Summary Report
Please choose one essay/book chapter to read, summarize, and report on. You’ll write a summary report for your classmates and me (create a handout for your classmates), and you’ll present this information to the class. Your goal here is to teach the rest of the class about a source that we don’t have time to read but may be interested in reading in the future. All of these essays (except the two from the online journal, Kairos) available in a folder on reserve at the library, so you may read any essay you’re interested in. They are also mostly available electronically, through JSTOR or the MLA International Bibliography database on EBSCOHost. I would suggest that you make a photocopy of the essay you’ve chosen to read and write about (and I can certainly make a copy for you, if that would help you).
You’ll also need to choose a date to present your summary report; the list of available dates is at the end of this handout. Ideally, the articles on collaboration and group work should be presented toward the last few weeks of class, although all the articles will be of interest throughout the semester. Only one student will report on each article, and sign-up for both the articles and the time slots is on a “first-come, first-served” basis, so do your research early to decide what you’d like to read and when you’d like to present.
