Throughout the three plus days of this exercise, please keep notes on your interactions with the materials included in each day’s assignment on Poly Learn, your experiences, and your thoughts and observations. You may type the notes or write them legibly by hand. When you turn the notes in to me, please contain them in a lightweight folder, or staple them securely. I will evaluate your notes on your commitment to the exercise and your willingness to participate fully. Quantity matters, but I am also looking for quality observations and thoughtfulness. At times, I have given you specific things I want you to include in your notes. I will look for observations that show you have interacted with the material I set up for you on each of the three days, and that you have engaged in the activities I have assigned. I will not grade the notes on grammar or spelling, but please remember it makes me grumpy if I can’t read them easily and you do not want me to be grumpy when I grade.
At the end of interacting with the materials and spending the three days paying attention and taking notes, I hope you find something that sparks your interest. Take time to read back over your notes and think about your experiences and observations. Find something you want to write about and compose a paper. This paper should be at least four pages of double-spaced type.
Please include a bibliography at the end of the paper citing at least three sources you use in MLA format. You may use sources I supplied for you, but I will be impressed if you find additional sources because you are interested in further research on your topic.
I will evaluate the paper...
