Short Written Assignments: Summaries, Quotes, or Analyses

You'll sometimes be asked to write something short on what you've read. (This is usually done as an alternative to my giving you a quiz on the reading—although I won't promise you that they'll be no quiz if there's a short written assignment.) Here are the "types" of things I might ask for:

Unless told otherwise, summaries, quotes, and analyses should be about one page. Please make sure to typeset what you turn in. Note that I definitely do care about the quality of your writing even when it's just a short thing you're turning in. Remember too, from the course information sheet, that I'm always happy for things to be in LaTeX (but this is not a requirement), and you really should not use Arial font or anything else comparably ugly. (Be nice; I have to read 45 of these things).
