Write your answers (a Word document or simply including the review as the body of an email would be best) using complete sentences and paragraphs. Paragraphs are important to good writing as they serve to organize ideas and concepts. Also, be conscious of tense. Be consistent. If you use present tense to begin a paragraph, be careful not to switch to past tense, unless it fits with what you are trying to convey. (Notice that Part 1 is only worth 6 points! Be brief!)
–First of all, write the title of your book, the author’s name, and the year published.
1. Briefly summarize the book. Write a simple, two or three sentence, summary. Tell me (very basically) what your book deals with. (6 points)
2. Sustainability assessment. Does the author come across as a proponent (supporter) of ‘sustainable living’?
Whatever your opinion, please offer a few specific examples from the book that support it (12 points) (2-3 paragraphs)
3. Did you like the book? Why?/Why not? Explain in some detail. Once again, if you can, cite a few lines of text from the book that you feel justify (‘back up’) your evaluation. Would you recommend this book to future geography classes? Why/why not? (12 points) (2-3 paragraphs)
