Reading Notes 1
READ: Omnivore’s Dilemma (185-225, 239-273, 287-303)
To read more attentively, annotate the reading for The Omnivore’s Dilemma (185-303), writing notes in your book, or notes in a notebook indicating page numbers (you could underline, circle, highlight, write comments, etc.). This is for your own benefit and I will not be collecting the annotation. In addition to annotating your reading, please upload a response to one or more of the following four points (at least one paragraph long):
- a passage that struck you; what comments or questions did you have about this?
- an unfamiliar word. Look it up and explain how knowing the meaning helps you understand the passage.
- a key word, metaphor, or concept that you come across. How does this help you to better understand the text? OR
- an apparent contradiction. If something seems contradictory, go back to see if you can reconcile the differences and come to an interpretation that makes more consistent sense.
