    Query \(\PageIndex{1}\)

    Домашнее задание:

    Read the article that we agreed upon for your topic. I recommend making an account with Readlang, which can help you read articles on the web if you install the web reader on your browser.

    Upload a document to D2L that answers the following questions in English:

    1. Paste in the link to the text that you read.
    2. Summarize the text as well as you can (don’t worry if you don’t understand everything!).
    3. Why did you choose this text? What is interesting about it? How does it fit into your topic?
    4. What strategies did you use to understand the text? What did you figure out that you weren’t sure of, and how did you do that?
    5. What things did you still have trouble understanding?
    6. What did this text contribute to your understanding of your topic in the Russian context?
    7. List 5 words from the article that are new to you that you think would be useful to remember.
    8. What style is the text?
    9. Did you notice any verbal adjectives or verbal adverbs in the text?
