In this lesson, students integrate additional texts with course readings and themes. Each student reads one of a select number of additional texts picked by the professor, write a short paper integrating the additional text with course materials, and then present these connections to the class as part of a panel discussion with the other students who read that specific additional text. This lesson is ideal for adding more interdisicplinarity to upper-level courses, ideally towards the end of the semester.
