  17. 17. 09/08/13 Dr. Noora Malki, al (c) all rights reserved 17 How to study for the Course? Q&A - Where to get required texts? This presentation includes direct links to all texts which you are supposed to study for this semester. Download them on your pc or laptop, or print them out. - Where to get the instructor’s lecture notes? After each lecture, you will find a power point presentation + some related files to the lecture on my website under the LANE 341 navigation menu. You can use these files to study for tests, but I encourage you to search for your own voice (express your ideas freely). - Grading? Check out the slide on Assessments and Grading. You have to follow the style of Academic Writing you studied during the 3rd -4th Levels because the proper expression of ideas necessitates that you use sound language and structure.
  18. 18. 09/08/13 Dr. Noora Malki, al (c) all rights reserved 18 NEXT Lecture Q&A - The Nature of Literature We will look into some definitions and discuss them together, so I encourage you to download and read this file (pgs. 1-6). You can as well surf the net looking for the definition of literature that means the most to YOU.
