You will be reading the preface and the first two chapters of his book. They’re very short, so don’t worry! · “Claiming an Education,” Adrienne Rich. It’s important to consider that this essay was originally a speech given to students at Douglass College, an all-female institution, in 1977. Look over the questions in the “What Do You Think” section at the end of the essay. You don’t have to answer them in writing, but think about them because they might offer an interesting point of entry into our class discussion on Monday. · “Only Connect…,” William Cronon. This is an essay that was published in an academic journal in 1998.

When I say “read and annotate,” I mean that I want you to actively engage with the text. Highlight or underline sentences or passages that stand out to you – the “golden lines,” I like to call them. These are the bits of text that strike a chord with you for one reason or another – sometimes it’s because you can relate on a personal level, or because the writing is particularly good or the idea is particularly well stated, or because you don’t fully understand or agree with what the author is saying, or because you feel like that line perfectly captures the main idea of the piece. After reading each piece jot down 2-3 questions or comments you have in response. You can write these directly on the readings. 3. After reading all three, write a 1-2 page response in which you reflect upon all three readings, my syllabus, our class discussion today, the UNST video (I’m hoping I have time to show it in class, if not disregard). What are your thoughts about the ideas these writers have on education? Are you noticing connections between these pieces, recurring ideas or themes? What have you taken away from these readings? What thoughts have you had in response? Please type this response.

We will be discussing these readings in class on Wednesday, so please bring all three with you, along with your typed response and your opening reflection. So to recap, here’s what’s due next Monday: · Education reflection (done before reading) · Highlighted and annotated readings, with 2-3 questions written on each · 1-2 page typed response

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
