- TODAY’s Mohawk Walk: In the second half of class, let’s either take a walk or watch some movies in advance of Indigenous Peoples Day.
- Note: next week, class is on Tuesday & Wednesday, since 10/10 is Indigenous Peoples Day & other things.
- Manhattan Field Trip next Wednesday. I need a few volunteers (worth a 200-word make-up assignment):
- to help late arriving students (you would need to share your contact info with the class)
- to hold iPad camera during the talk from 3:00-3:50
- ALSO: everyone should wear masks!!! We will be in the studio of an 84-year-old.
- Please email me if you’re interested.
- Follow-up on 1-on-1s
- Last 1-on-1s: at 3:45
- Important reminder as you develop your research, from Surviving R. Kelly: “You can victimize people when you de-humanize them.” (30 secs) It’s important to minimize assumptions, find actual evidence, and avoid hyperbole! Not only can this dehumanize the groups you’re writing about, it’s also poor scholarship.
- D&T Orgs & Articles that came to mind during 1-on-1s. I will add links later today.
- Need more time to chat? Schedule a few minutes before or after class (aka office hours)!
- Google Docs Quick Tutorials:
- Add page numbers
- Add a table of contents
- Add page breaks
- Add URLS
- Note that word counts are recommendations only. You can have slightly longer/shorter sections as long as your first full draft of writing adds up to about 4000 words.
- What’s the difference between an Annotated Bibliography and a Literature Review? (U Texas)
- Start to think about making your title more specific.
- Is it a systematic review? Or more of a narrative/critical/traditional review?
- Please be sure to address in your papers:
- What’s the geography/language?
- Are there any other demographic specifics? If so, specify them!
- What’s the marginalized/justice aspect?
- Do your best to cite any assertions!!!
- Note that “scholarly” articles must be peer-reviewed.
- For everyone: This paper is a good example of a NON-systemic lit review. I would say it’s a critical/thematic review. If you paper does not have a quantitative analytic component, take a look at this paper as a possible model.
- These papers papers are good examples of systematic lit reviews.
- More on types of lit reviews (University of Tampa)
- Brief visit from Larissa Szilagyi, Program Administrator. Our Manhattan field trip next Wednesday will continue the discussion, focusing on “Aging and Creativity.”
Would it be useful to access a talk from the co-director of the Aging Incubator?
Assignment: Next 300 words
- You know what to do. Please be ready for spot checks on TUESDAY.
