Book Selection

| 1 Comment

There are several options for you to choose from to do your book report. They are: Lush Life, The Other Wes Moore, Picking Cotton, Orange is the New Black, Echo From Dealy Plaza, No Higher Calling-No Greater Responsibility.

You should choose a book that you are genuinely interested in, and consider this an opportunity to read something that you enjoy (even though it is also for a class). You can read reviews and summaries of these books at Amazon.

Each of these books are available at University Book and Supply next to the texts for this course. Many of these books are available at the UNI library and our local Cedar Falls and Waterloo Public Libraries. You may also purchase them at a local book seller like Barnes and Noble in Waterloo, or online at Amazon or other online merchants. Amazon also has digital options for your IPhone, Nook, or Kindle.

You should order/get your book THIS WEEK.

Guidelines for the book report are here: and also linked under the Course Resources tab of this website.

Review your calendar and be prepared to choose a Thursday due date sometime this semester. A sign up sheet for due dates will be passed around in class on Thursday.  

On your due date, you will turn a hardcopy in to me in class. Given that you are choosing your own deadline, no late papers are accepted. You may change your deadline throughout the semester as long as you provide 2 weeks notice. You must email your request to me, and if I approve it, include a copy of the email with your final report. You will also turn in a copy electronically to (information about this is linked under the Course Resources tab.

Allow sufficient time to read your book and write your report.
