Next week we will be taking a few days to consider how and why we know what we think we know by reading and discussing excerpts from Samuel Arbesman’s The Half-life of Facts. The selections will be available under the Readings tab above and will have an accompanying blog prompt.
Mon 9/9–Chapters 1-3
Wed 9/11–Chapter 5
Fri 9/13–Chapter 9-10
Due to its running time of just a bit over two hours, tomorrow’s screening of Fast Five will begin at 4:30.
For those who had a Thursday evening class conflict, please see the alternate assignment below.
The blog prompt is posted. Remember to complete the reading and post your response by Monday morning.
You will find links to the assignment sheet for the the final paper, as well as a sample paper, below. Note that this example suggests ways of discussing the film using genre, how to incorporate sources, and basic formatting. Your paper must be five pages in length to meet the assignment.
