Prof Derek P Royal ENG 599 7 Bibliography and Methods of Research Critical Terminology Presentation During the first few weeks of the semester everyone will be responsible for presenting on one of the critical terms that we will be discussing as a class The presentation will stem from our readings in Lentricchia s and McLaughlin s Critical Terms for Literary Study Everyone is required to read the speci c chapters for a particular week but one student will have the responsibility of researching this term and leading the class in a discussion on the term To this effect I would like for all presenters to keep the following guidelines in mind gt V V V V V V Carefully read your assigned chapter in the text Outline the author s discussionarguments and use that as a basis for your discussion Investigate your critical term in a variety of outside critical sources such as literary dictionaries and encyclopedias See how others define your term and look for both similarities as well as differences in definitions Formulate a series of questions that foreground the significance of your critical term These questions should be used as basis upon which to begin our class discussion Speculate on how your term might be significant in the study of literature linguistics and rhetoriccomposition Consider the questions which fields of English studies might this term be most significant How might precisions of definition and understanding determine the ways in which a particular study is conducted Be prepared to lead the portion of the class that concerns your topic Assume that no one else in class has a thorough understanding of the term So basically you will be leading an introduction to your assigned term But you SHOULD assume that everyone in class has completed the week s reading in the text Write up a two page summary of your critical term presentation to hand in to me on your assigned evening
