* Reading and answering questions
Why are we writing these?
Writing is thinking – by writing down your thoughts in response to our class readings, your brain is making connections and coming up with questions.
These assignments will also help you participate in class by giving you specific comments you can make during our discussions, so please take some time to think about your answers. Don’t worry about grammar or formatting – just spend some time writing down your ideas!
Readings to Complete Before Responding:
Where to submit:
“Prelude to a Revolution”
“A Closer Look at…53206” https://www.milwaukeemag.com/milwaukee-zip-code-53206/
– What surprised you in these texts? Why do you think you had this reaction?
Possible Points: 10 (see rubric below)
Here’s how I’ll grade this assignment:
You have clearly completed the reading or other assigned work thoroughly and thoughtfully. There is clear evidence of your effort to engage, think and prepare for class.
You’ve likely completed all or most of the reading or other assigned work. There is some evidence of effort to prepare and intellectual engagement with the material, but it is perhaps uneven or less fully developed than the top point category.
You may have completed some of the reading and tried to put something together to prepare for class. The writing suggests a lack of effort and engagement.
Very little effort. Clearly thrown together 5 minutes before class. Very little to no evidence of completed the reading or other assigned work.
