1. As you read Anderson, identify the key categories/variables/forces or other identifications that Anderson makes, and write them down. Aim for 6-8 separate variables.
2. Consider how these variables connect or link to each other, either using Anderson’s direct descriiptions of relationships, or perhaps linkages you identify on your own.
3. Draw a diagram depicting the variables you’ve identified, and their relationships to each other. It should look something like this (but it does not have to have as many pieces as this example):

4. Lastly, consider variables you’ve identified from previous readings in this course, and attempt to add them to your map of Anderson where appropriate. (This is the most challenging part, so do your best, and we’ll work together on this skill in the weeks ahead. So don’t worry! Just do your best at this point and let’s see what we come up with.)
You can do it by hand and take a picture, or use software, such as Powerpoint, or any other software that you find useful for diagramming. The only requirement for using software is that you are able to save as a picture or .pdf to ensure it’s accessible to your classmates.
