How to Mark a Book” to annotate “Discursive Formations”, english assignment help

For this assignment, will employ the strategies outlined in Adler’s “How to Mark a Book” to annotate “Discursive Formations” (under Shared Files).

one of the most important strategies is using the margins for questions, thoughts, etc. Keep track of these, even if in a separate notebook.  This is the strategy on which I would like you to focus.

After annotating “Discursive Formations”, will compose a brief reflection that responds to their own personal line of inquiry.  Specifically, I want you to focus on 2 or 3 instances from your annotation where you noted questions about the text, found something intriguing, found something problematic, etc.

For each of these instances, you will compose a paragraph that either speculates an answer to your own question or explicates why you noted a particular moment in the text.  There should be no introduction or conclusion, just entries identified by quoting the first few words of the sentence you’ve noted.

For example:

“I have decided to describe statements . . .”

Foucault uses the term “statements” repeatedly throughout this passage.  He even references using the word indiscriminately which makes me wonder if there is a specific meaning to his use of the word.  When I think of the word “statement”, I imagine verbal or written expression, but Foucault’s meaning seems to go beyond . . .

and so on, and so on.

Reflections should be approximately 1 page in length (double-spaced).
