    1. Course content headings should stand out in terms of font and position relative to other wording and outline. Use of bullets, italics and balancing does not enhance readability. Also, consistency of the columns and layout for the table are off, causing inconsistency and confusion due to improper alignments and proportion lacking overall for the contents table and outline. Topic headers are of the same color, value, shape and form for calling out new and important categories, where they should have different shape and form as well as alignment. Additional emphasis could be added to grading section to call out evaluative criteria for this are. Movement from section to section should be consistent with formatting and shapes as well as alignments that guide reader and students strategically. Hyperlinks could be properly formatted to allow for seamless movement through syllabus allowing for better connectivity and fluidity. More strategic use of images that guide learner in direction of necessary materials and reading texts associated with the class, which also allow for a variety and contrast between themes and required materials.

    1. Instead of reading for content or to better understand the ideas in the writing (which you will automatically do to some degree anyway), you are trying to understand how the piece of writing was put together by the author and what you can learn about writing by reading a particular text.

      The ability to understand Historical events requires a different skill set than the ability to put those understandings into words. historical study is saddled with the expectation of years of compiling data and research. To even pursue higher education it is required to do so. Learning how other Historians and individuals put their thoughts and research into an essay or collection is one of the most important weapons in a Historians arsenal.

    2. As a college student, you must be ready to explore and examine a wide range of ideas, whether you agree with them or not.

      This is my biggest take away from this article. Before understanding strategy, theory, or study one has to be able to take in and understand multiple objective points of truth. Our one understanding of an event or idea is just one of billions. To fully embrace other ideas even if they go against our very moral fiber is the most important tool any person can learn. It is not something that can be taught in school or through reading but in practicum and years of conscious effort and even that may not be enough.

    3. Review

      Some of my classmates have already highlighted this particular strategy but I feel it bears repeating. Reviewing not only helps to ensure you have a fresh understanding but also to make certain that an individual is confident in their study. If we also span a few years, revisiting old work and research can help put into perspective how our views have changed and the growth we've certainly achieved. Putting points together from two different times is a fantastic way to chart and understand growth from a personal and Historical perpective.

    4. . This means that the goal of the paper is to research a topic and develop an argument about it using evidence and facts to support your position.

      Argumentative style research and discussion helps to create an environment of discussion. By researching a topic through your own means and building an objective opinion it expands the avenues for how History can be interpreted. but more than that it allows researchers the means to justify and have discourse on their varying perspectives.

    5. Web sites and blogs can be a source of insight and information, but not all are useful as academic resources.

      The most important thing I believe for Historical study learning how to identify reputable sources for reference. Looking towards an authors experience on the subject, the domain of the website, and even if the material has been referenced elsewhere can help determining the validity of the material.

    1. How does the armed conflict in Guatemala compare with other wars?

      Here the author is showing exactly the questions he hopes to find answers to. These listed questions enable us to understand his motive and purpose for the layout of this article. Similarly I am looking for what his main purpose is in conveying the information and how best to look at it. Why did he write this? What does the information relate to? how can I interpret and utilize this research myself? these are my biggest questions and goals in tandem with understanding his own.

    2. (pp. , )

      The article utilizes annotations like these to directly link to articles and passages that the author used throughout. However more importantly the author uses dates throughout the writing to build not only physical reference points for curious users but to also enable the audience the ability to have a starting point for their own desired study.

    3. the geographical review

    4. As sick-ening as they are incriminating, the teeming contents of the ahpn are unlikely,given the impunity that prevails in Guatemala, to bring little more than tokenjustice to the perpetrators of among the most heinous abuses of human rights in allof Latin America.

      There seems to be more emphasis on building a foundation for explaining the history predating this event than the construction of an explicit argument. The piece acts more like a conduit with reference and definitions to help readers understand the context of preexisting organizations and events. This in turns enables us to understand the event more. By forgoing an overall argument we are instead able to better understand the grotesque nature of the themes of the event and form a base realization of its ramifications. Not all historical articles need to be argumentative, teaching is just if not more effective.

    1. Identify key distinctions. Scholars often make important conceptual distinctions in their work.

      This entire point right here from my personal opinion may be the most important in understanding History. The distinctions of ideas and experiences is what makes Historical Study so rewarding and complicated. Different viewpoints on the same event can create a whole picture and build a narrative inclusive to as many sides as possible. The variation is what creates depth of study and builds a base for further research.

    2. you must become what one author calls a “predatory” reader. That is, you must learn to quickly determine the important parts of the scholarly material you read

      This piece may be the single most critical point take away from the article. It states the overall message trying to be conveyed as well as sets up groundwork for further exploration. In study of any topic there is an abundance of information, deciphering and cross referencing that material is the objective purpose of historians. In order to understand and compile that information one has to be able to study quickly and efficiently past and new works. The steps that follow this statement are building upon its base claim.

      You have to learn how to become a more assertive, dedicated reader that knows how to handle/ comprehend the material. While also learning to prioritize what is most important

    7. Finally

      "Predatory" reading makes me think of building a house. You have to get the foundation (argument?), build the frame (topic sentences and "signposts"), and add the walls, roof, ect. (the rest of the written work). After you've built your house, you should inspect it (reread) to prepare for sale.

    8. Signposts

      A good signpost should let us know where we are going and help us find our place when rereading.

    9. argument

      "Argument"-this is our main target.

    10. What does it “do” for the author’s argument?

      Ask your "why?" (Why does this matter? Why was this included?) and your "What?" (What is the writer's goal? What is the main take away here?)

    11. you must learn to quickly determine the important parts of the scholarly material you read

      Reading for pleasure gives us the time to take the material in as thoroughly as we'd like. "Predatory" reading of scholarly works requires us to select our target and take firm hold of it.

    12. Reading scholarly material requires a new set of skills.

      The best way for comprehending scholarly works is to understand the meaning of the work that you're reading and to look at all different angles.

    13. Think pragmatically.

      Reading for pleasure is a lot simpler than reading nonfiction books because when reading for pleasure, it would typically be a fiction story and those are always one path of reading. But when reading nonfiction or scholarly books, it's only taken form that persons point of view, even though there are probably a bunch other angles you could look at it through.
