And now the extra credit for my students:
You can earn up to 30 extra points total, ten each for different kind of event you attend, up to three events. My suggestions:
- The Keynote Address
- Motorcycle Diaries (¡Viva la Revolucion!)
- Frida Kahlo exhibit
Consider addressing at least one or several of these bullets:
- Use specific details, painting a picture for your audience: What was the tone of the presentation, the mood, what were the audiences' responses?
- How did the speakers/art/film make you feel?
- What did it make you think?
- What did you learn?
- Praise it or critique it, or both.
- What did you like most and/or least?
- What does it tell us about how we construct identity and/or culture?
- What other unique response can you give?
Word Count: 400+ words each, but make sure you've got a complete essay in the end, therefore if it needs to be longer, make it longer. ¿Comprende?
Value: 10 points possible for each event
Due Date: 20 October 2010 for all responses.
