Annotate: This is a complex essay that will take close attention. Annotate the essay. Look up vocabulary and names that you are not familiar with.
Pose questions in the margins. At times he uses words that are unfamiliar, or uses words in unusual ways.

Another way to question the text is to draw. If he describes an image or an invention or a process, drawing it can help you understand it.

Write: Write a reading response: What passages or sections were most compelling to you? Why? What did they reveal? What is Davenport’s main idea?
