Hi Daniela and all! Daniela, your first relational summary is 90% there! I like the way you are relating the quotes and ideas from the book to your personal experiences. By letting us know the pages of the text you are pulling the ideas from you are giving us a COGNITIVE MAP of the book as it relates to your life and insights. That is exactly what I want.
Now all you need is to provide linkages to outside reading, to support material. That will make your relational summaries perfect!
Remember, all, that the way I am asking you to construct these summaries is to give me at least three quotes from the book and at least three links to outside readings so that we can explore the ideas further. All good things come in threes, they say , the “holy trinity” of education.
I follow the “minimum of three” idea also so that we conform to Mercy’s evaluation policies. Mercy asks that we log in and post writings in the discussion area at least 3 times a week. And there are at least three major assignments for grades. Mine, of course, are the relational summaries, the midterm multimedia project and the final experimental study. Think “3” as you work and you can’t go wrong. Double it to 6 and you are a hero!
Keep up the good work and go beyond!
