Choose a literary work from the list below. If you are unfamiliar with any of the works, you can review the linked overviews. Read the literary work. Identify a possible essay topic for the literary work you've chosen, and write a very brief topic description (1 sentence or less) that includes the author's name and title of the work. This can be done as a phrase, question or statement.
In GALILEO, locate a scholarly, peer-reviewed article about your topic. Refer to the Library Assignment Guide for specific database recommendations and helpful search strategies.
Read your article carefully, so that you can share the following information in your presentation:
Using Collaborate Ultra, we will meet and each of you will share your topic, then provide the information listed above about your article.
During our Collaborate conference, you will be asked to present picture ID.
The presentation should be 3-4 minutes in length. This is meant to be a succinct overview of the article only. Don't write a script, but have clear notes in front of you when you present. No visual aids are required; however, if you have a pertinent image or website you wish to share, that is easily arranged. If time permits, we will have a brief discussion of the articles as well.
You do not need to schedule your conference. Simply attend the session that fits your schedule best.
**Please visit the Collaborate session prior to our meeting if you have not used Collaborate Ultra before. Occasionally, students have issues with microphones, etc. You need to login in prior to the conference and address any of these issues if they are occurring on your computer. If working out these computer "bugs" takes longer than 5 minutes, your presentation will be penalized. If you miss more than 15 minutes of the session, you will need to reschedule for another session. If one is not available, you will not receive credit for the Journal Club.
