FEI Papers
The first nine assignments are Fact-Evaluation-Interpretation (FEI) posts. These three words refer to a technique of writing meant to encourage close reading and discussion. Full credit on an FEI paper requires three components:
• Write a factual question and answer it yourself using resources outside the article
o Factual questions include: What does [a word] mean? Who is [a person]? When did [an event] happen? What is [a thing]?
• Write an evaluative statement (500 words)
o Evaluative statements include: I disagree with [position or idea]. I relate to [idea] because in my own life [personal experience]…
• Write an interpretive question (no answer, 100-300 words)
o Interpretive questions include: When the author says [passage], does s/he mean [an interpretation] or [another interpretation]? On the one hand, the author says [passage], but then elsewhere s/he says [different passage]–is that inconsistent? Is the real meaning of what the author is saying [your thought], or is it something else? When I read [passage], I think it means [your thought]–but I’m not sure because [doubt]. Am I right? In one reading, I thought [something] was true, but in this reading the author says [passage]. Is [something] really true?
*Please bring a hard copy of your FEI paper to class each week.
