In Humanities honors this year we were given different reading materials to read and annotate to prepare for our biweekly meetings. The reading material ranged from dissertations to books to articles. On the day of the meeting we brought our annotations to discussions with our peers to ask clarifying questions and talk about the essential questions. This gave everyone a better understanding of the text to help us write our reflection on the reading. On some of the reflections, we had to choose a quote from the reading and reflect on it. And other reflections were formatted like the SAT essays, where we had to find evidence from the text to show the writing technique the author used to argue their point. Second semester, we also had to watch a live performance or Oscar nominated movie and write a paper about the technical and content components.
