GIS 3510: Intermediate Reading and Writing
Important Announcements: October 6, 1999
If you downloaded to your computer, or printed, all class materials, youll need to
do so again, starting from Weeks 5-6. Sorry, but I had to introduce some last-moment
One portion of Weeks 7-9 involves a book review from a list of some 30 books. I had to
limit your choice to these 30 books for two reasons. First, I wanted to make sure that you
read at least one classic in this class. Second, I can only evaluate reviews of books that
I myself have read. Note, however, that the list includes short and easy books that can be
comfortably read in one evening. If you are pressed for time, choose one of these books.
Your grade for this assignment will be determined by the quality of your review, not by
the length or reading level of the book you choose.
If you cant catch up, and if you are willing to receive, at most, a B grade in
this class, you NEED not do the assignments for Weeks10-11, 12-15. Instead, you can
use these six weeks to catch up on, improve, and revise your work. Please let me know if
you choose this option.
