This is a picture from a two weeks ago, the Wednesday before the RA1’s were due. This is everyone in group 3 except Abigail, however she was there and had to leave before we remembered to take the picture, whoops. Anyways, that night we read our assigned reading for the annotations, which was “The Cultural Work of a Mohegan Painted Basket.” We read it as a group, as we gave our opinions and takes on certain parts of the story. It really helped improve my overall understanding of the story and its relevance to the theme of cultural importance. After we finished the reading, we all started to annotate the story together, helping each other with our respective annotations. It helped me choose which annotations were worth keeping, and cutting the poorer ones. This study group was very helpful for my success on the RA1’s.
