THE TASK:

1. There are about 36 LitDevs, divide them up so each person has a couple
2. Use the above resources to start gathering info about your devices in EVERNOTE
3. Rewrite (paraphrase/summarize) the definition (be careful to check several sites)
4. Give three "quote" examples from books, movies or songs for full credit, with a short sentence about "why" the
example is an example
5. Give three video clips (max of :30, not a whole movie, just a clip), with a short sentence about "why" the
example is an example
5. Cite at least one web page per page, using EasyBib at the end of the LitDev section

The whole thing gets finished up in KEYNOTE, but that's for later.
