As a source contributor, you would locate a print or digital text related to one of the established topics. Contributors “vet” the source as having academic quality, write an introductory abstract highlighting the source’s connection to the theme, provide the bibliographic information (including URL) to the source, and write 2-4 comprehension questions for the source. The established topics are linked to at the top of this page.
Be a Unit Editor
As an editor, you would propose a topic or subtopic and take responsibility (by yourself or with a team of others) for assembling a collection of 5-8 sources on a unified theme. The unit editor would be responsible for a unit introduction, for balancing the viewpoints among the articles in the proposed unit, and for writing a list of 3-6 “synthesis ideas” that might come from working with those sourced.
Be a Reviewer
As a reviewer, you would provide feedback to the Unit Editors or the Digital Reader coordinators on the clarity of the introduction, the academic quality of the sources, the accessibility of materials, and the balance of points of view in the unit. The reviewer can make recommendations to improve the unit.
