For the weekend: Find and bookmark five pieces that you think might help you inform your thinking about your culture essay. And this about both your topic and your lens -- don't just search for "Star Wars" if that's your lens, for example -- look for people discussing The Hero's Journey or whatever broad idea you expect looking at "Star Wars" will help you illuminate. And when you're done, write a few sentences as a comment on this message about where you are now. What are you hoping to write about? What don't you know yet?
