You will select a book related to this course and then read in its entirety. You should select a book that you are excited to read, one that is related to your career interests, and/ or one that will provide you with credit toward a certificate program.
UM-Dearborn Library already has many of the pre-approved books in print format and/or ebook format. Find info about each pre-approved book and how to access them through the library on the Print Books page and the E-Books page.
After reading the book then you will create a short presentation to pitch your book for the book bracket competition. We will have a book tournament (modeled after the March Madness NCAA basketball tournament) and the winner will receive a choice of prizes (examples include, extra points on this assignment or a “skip pass” to use on one essay on the final exam or on one reading assignment). We will vote as a class on the winners of each round.
