VIDEO THAT NEED TO BE WATCH:
I want to see that you read and actually thought about the readings
Think about potential final project ideas as you read and take notes – what will be helpful for you to go back to when you need to write your essay?
- You must answer 2 (or more) of the following prompts:
- Pick something from the reading that resonated with you. What was it? Why?
- Pick something from your daily life or from popular culture/news that resonated with you. This should relate to some themes in the class. Describe what it was. Why did it resonate?
- Your answer to these may not be enough to hit page/word count requirements
- Do NOT just take notes. You may include notes, but I want to see your own thoughts
- Some additional questions to think about (you don’t have to answer these)
- What was new to you? Why is it new – what about education, public history, etc. created barriers to knowing this information?
- How do the readings connect to your everyday life in Los Angeles?
- I’m asking that you hit 1 Word Doc/Google Doc page for EACH required reading – this is not a hard rule
- Some weeks you’ll like one reading more than the other
- Sometimes you’ll really love a reading and want to go well over that page count
- Other weeks you’ll not really connect with a reading and have less to say
- If the page count is a hard way to imagine how much you have to write, write 400-600 words per reading entry
