I will assign "Reading Maps" for selected readings. This is a five-part assignment designed to serve several purposes: (1) it provides a sample of the essays on which students are working; (2) it allows me to assess students' level of engagement with the text; (3) it enhances the students' reading-writing skills as well as their critical-thinking skills; (4) it is designed to help students have a better understanding of the text; and (5) it allows them to activate all parts of the reading process (BDA) and cite, summarize, learn new vocabulary, annotate, activate prior knowledge, etc.
