  • Read and annotate for class on the due date.  Bring your annotations to class.  It is a challenging read- remember: it is acceptable to annotate areas that you are confused by noting them with a question mark and your ideas/questions/troubles in the margin.  You need to define new words with synonyms that make sense when you reread them in context.
