NENG 221: Analytical Reading & Writing (Ide): Introduction



Your assignment asks you to select a chosen topic and a pro or con issue to debate.

During the class session, I will show you the best databases and encyclopedias for finding reliable articles, selecting short articles (6-8), writing an APA annotated bibliography to help you evaluate the articles, and selecting the final 3 articles you will use for your paper/presentation to support your position (pro/con). 

You will meet with me during the week of 9/20-9/24 to review the articles and annotated bibliography. If you haven't found good articles, I can assist you with your search for articles. It is best to do this before the week of 9/20-9/24 if you cannot find articles. This is required and part of your participation grade. We will meet again at the end of October or the beginning of November.

Check my Zoom availability using my appointment calendar. When I am available, my Zoom room will be open and you can drop in. You will get an email from me after you make an appointment for confirmation. I am also available during my reference desk hours on Friday, 9/24 from 9-11 am (this will not show up on my appointment calendar, thus sharing). You need to complete this Google form when you meet me. 

If you have questions, feel free to contact me, Joan Naturale - I am the NTID and Deaf Studies Librarian and happy to help.
