Instead of answering a set of questions about Bamford’s essay, your assignment is to begin making connections between our readings.
How does Bamford’s essay work with our previous readings? For example, how does his work extend ideas we’ve already encountered? Does he work against any of our readings by complicating, raising questions about, or critiquing their points or conclusion?
To prepare for discussion and class work, choose at least one place in Bamford’s essay that works with at least one of our previous readings. Then write a paragraph that does the following:
- provides the immediate context
- paraphrases and/or quotes the passage or idea
- explains what the example means
- connects it to another reading using specific details
- Explains why these combined points might be important
