August 28, 2007 Engaging the Readings The readings are important – read with a question mark Figure out what its telling you, what its arguing, where it falls short Be prepared to discuss Take notes on the readings Annotate Think about the lectures – questions, what they are saying – similar to readings If you miss, find out what’s due – email Prof. at BKLIENER@ MSU.EDU Email in reading briefs – also help improve writing Participation Essential Get over shyness and ask more of yourself Not expecting good articulation but it’s a learning process Quantity does NOT equal quality Be civil and respectful even when disagreeing Try to engage and think about what others are saying with your own opinion This is independent from lecture – it is not optional Read the New York Times everyday – Free in Case Hall or online Be able to keep track of the new and know what’s going on in the world Be aware of current events so we can compare with the older texts
