The Kindle is an e-book reader that we hope to have in Reeves Library for you to check out. For this exercise, analyze your experience using the Kindle, applying material from the course to your experience. The essay isn't actually due until the last day
Students sign up to present on two of the four forum dates.
Presenters: Anchor your presentation in a deeper exploration of ideas examined in at least one essay from Writing Material that are not part of the required reading. Demonstrate your ability to use what you have learned so far to defend a non-obvious position on an issue that will teach something of value to the class. Draw the attention of the class to particular passages in WM that are not on the required reading list.
Suggestions from WM: Douglas, Malcolm X, Borges, Baker, Porter, Twain; also, another appropriate passage is McLuhan 265-279.
Possible case study: "The Defense of Fort McHenry"
