If it's your week to write a 500-word article critique, you must post this to your section blog before your section meets.
If it's your week to give a speech, prepare and practice! Otherwise, prepare for a possible extemporaneous speech response.
Post your rough draft of paper #1 to your personal wiki pages (create a separate subpage so that your peer reviewers can just "comment" at the bottom).
First five minutes: QUIZ on reading terms
Two student presentations (#3 and #4) on the readings (and two student extemporaneous responses).
Discuss this week's lecture and required readings.
Your TA will set up peer review groups ( 6 students in each) and post these on your discussion section wiki in case you forget.
ONLINE OVER THE WEEKEND
This week you are going to explore some historical news databases.
Pick a term relating to the modern information society -- ” "world wide web" or "computer" or "cell phone" or "digital divide" or ... well, use your imagination. The only constraint is that you can't pick a term that one of your fellow sectionmates has used (so it is in your interest to do this assignment early!)
