“Allegiance to Gratitude” by Robin Wall Kimmerer, attached as a pdf, or in the Content tab, under the Readings heading.
Choose a Wikipedia article and assess in terms of credibility, focus, organization, bias, variety of perspectives/viewpoints, tone, register. Reflect and discuss in terms of your Literacy Profile Portrait. What are the pros/cons of Wikipedia? How might this (or any) Wikipedia article be helpful to your writing process? What background information might you need in order to come up with an interesting angle or effective interview questions?

What do you think her interview questions were? (What did she ask her subjects?)
Week 9 have 2 assignments: A Discussion and a Dropbox
Discussion: Find an interview (check YouTube) and discuss what makes an interview successful. What do you think or already know about interviews? What did you learn from the video? What do you think the interviewer’s goal or purpose of the interview was? In what ways does the interviewer have to prepare for the interview? What makes a good (or inspiring!) interview question?
Dropbox: Choose five criteria from the lists of Genres (Narrative, Informative, Profile/Portrait) qualities. For each of these five, quote a specific part of “Allegiance to Gratitude” as an example for that criteria and write one sentence explaining what you liked about it or why it was important to the author’s message/purpose.
Example of an interview with Frieda Jacques, who was mentioned in “Allegiance to Gratitude” by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

Week 13: 1 assignment
Read: The Owlcation handout on “How to Write a Visual Analysis.”
What kind of media/mode/genre will you analyze for your Analysis Essay? Tell us what criteria your subject could be analyzed with. Explain why you think that criteria is important for that particular genre. For example, a Horror movie needs to have a scary soundtrack– in order to help build the suspense of the mood. Or one way we might judge an advertisement is if it has a representation or description of the product it’s selling- in order to help us understand the products design or features. In other words, you are making a claim about what that criteria is doing and how it serves the author’s purpose. Include an example, such as a screenshot or link to the type of media you might analyze.
When responding, give an example of another criteria that could be looked at. For example, you might notice how color is used to draw attention to important parts of an advertisement, which reinforces one of its main arguments.
