LECTURES and ASSIGNMENTS
* Issues with missing assignments?
every text (book, article, photo, film, whatever) triggers FIRST an
immediate emotional response. Make a note of your FIRST
IMMEDIATE emotional reaction. This is the raw material.
1. Get close to the text.
2. Read slowly at first. Sound the words in your mind. If necessary, "lip read" to slow yourself down.
3. Take notes of whatever strikes you. Make it a dialogue with yourself: a word you don't know; a sharp idea; a revealing detail; your mood; your guesses; a personal memory. Write down the page number.
