I introduced a lengthy handout today designed to help students tackle research projects. We continued our discussion of the Dominant Culture before beginning pre-research reading to pick a topic and write inquiry questions for the upcoming mini-research project. We wrapped up class with our first real look at a synthesis prompt. Homework: complete your Huck Finn annotations on the following schedule:

  • through ch. 11 due 1/14
  • through ch. 19 due 1/22
  • through ch. 27 due 1/28
  • through ch. 35 due 2/5
  • finished novel due 2/11
