Zombie Paper:  Assignment Prompt

Homework Due: Reading only.

Homework Assigned: Read Deborah Christie’s “Dead New World” and write a Reading Response on your blog. Reading Responses (RR) are a mixture of summary and personal response that begins with a direct quotation from the reading.  RRs have a 400 word minimum, which does not include the direct quotation at the beginning of the text. Refer back to my example of a Reading Reponse here. Due Monday 3/18/13 before class.
