Over the story Oryx and Crake, Give a short overview of the plot. Treat this like an introduction to the big, important
ideas that someone who hadn’t read the book would need to follow your larger points.
You don’t have to cover every detail, but a reader should be able to understand who
characters are, what the novel’s world is like, and where the story ends up and why.
• Using your overview, explain the set of problems or issues the author dwells on. Why
did their world fall apart? What might they want us to do so we don’t end up in the
• Do a bit of critical assessment. These are works of fiction, not objective descriptions of
our social trajectory. Are there parts of the plot or scenario that feel realistic? Or others
that are more far-fetched? Problems we should worry about or others we might not? Be
sure to explain why you think so, in either case.

Learning Goals and Assessment Assignment and Rubric
The purpose of this assignment is for you to make the connections between your learning goals and
your assessments and learning activities. In the last assignment (ungraded), you completed a
worksheet to think through your learning objectives and then developed a set of at least 4 learning
objectives. The next step is to move from the learning goals to the forms of assessment and the
teaching activities that will engage students in learning the material. Using the “3 column table”
template, please list at least 4 learning goals and then the associated assessment and learning
activities. The following is some additional information for each required element:
Course Overview – Provide a brief description of the course/training and how it fits into the
overall degree curriculum or perhaps a series of trainings. Please provide enough information
so that the purpose of the course is clear, specify the level of the course (graduate or
undergraduate, introductory or advanced, required or elective) and the complexity of the
course (introductory or advanced).
*** The next three items can be completed in the 3 column table.
Learning Goals – Be certain that you have considered Fink’s taxonomy and that you have
learning objectives appropriate to the level specified (grad/undergrad, intro/advanced,
required/elective). In addition, be sure that the learning objectives start with an active verb
(refer to Bloom’s taxonomy for help and examples).
Assessment Activities – Do your assessment activities match with your learning objectives? Are
you attempting to measure the degree to which the students are demonstrating proficiency or
mastery of each objective? It is ok for one assessment to measure performance on multiple
objectives, but you should have multiple forms of assessment, not just one for all or even most
objectives (ex. you should not have a single project to assess all learning objectives). Keep in
mind that not all assessment activities have to be formal, graded assignments; self-assessment
activities also can be used.
Learning Activities – What activities will you use to engage the students in the learning
experience? Why are these the best activities? Think about when you need to use an individual
activity or a group activity. (You can provide a brief description in the 3 column table and then
describe further in the narrative section.) Think about how the learning activity will best
prepare the students so that they are prepared to demonstrate proficiency or mastery on the
Narrative of the Table – Provide a brief description for each row describing how you will use your
learning activities to accomplish your learning objective and how you will use your assessments to
evaluate student learning in real time.
Read the pdf attatched and respond to the questions:
1. Author and Title of work:
2. Genre(s) What genre does this belong to?(I don’t know is ok—but give it a guess, or look into it) [& Common Features] By week three you should also include common features of the given genre.
3. Context This is a big category and you can choose among many elements to say something notable about context. Context includes everything outside the content that helps us make sense of a work, situating it in a tradition, place, time, conversation with others on similar subjects etc., for example, period, location, links to other authors or themes, author’s autobiography or background, what additional knowledge might conceivably help you understand the work.
4. Audience(s) For example, is it pitched to the general public; highly educated readers; specialists; students; a particular demographic group? (More examples) Consider how persuasive writing might be directed primarily to those with opposing positions, a letter might be to the addressee, but an open letter may also be to a much bigger audience, etc.)
5. Content: A single central point you think the work is making (need not be the only one; ok to have more than one if you like)
6. An idea or connection: Any one original idea, comment, or question you think about the content, or a way you connect it to current issues/events, history, other books, fields you’re studying.
7. What strategies, techniques, or tools helped you better understand, study, engage with this work? Just a sentence or a couple of words here is fine.
