Source review exercise

Pretend that you are giving a speech on the importance of video games.  You are going to receive a printout of a portion of a reliable source on this topic to read and review.  After reading through the source's four pages, please complete the following requirements.

  1. Summarize what you believe are the three most important topics/facts in the source using complete sentences.
  2. Write a sentence succinctly explaining how you would use the source in your speech.  How is the source as a whole useful?  What point can you argue using the evidence you wrote for question number one?
  3. Brainstorm at least two contradictory arguments that could be formed by someone reading the same source, and decide how these arguments work against the point you've composed for question two.  Write out these contradictory arguments in complete sentences.
  4. Edit what you've written into a short bibliographic annotation for this source.  Remember to highlight the answers to each of your previous questions in this annotation.
  5. Determine ways that you could memorably present your main point from question two, your three lines of evidence from question 1, and your most powerful contradictory argument from question three.  Prepare to present these in sixty seconds or less by writing a quick presentation outline.  You may be called upon to give this sixty second presentation at the end of the exercise.
You will need to turn in your annotation for this source at the end of the exercise.
