  • Please name each homework map you create as follows: “hwK-mapN, where K is the homework number and N is the map number within that homework.
  • This week you will be filling in and adding to map skeletons we provide. To use a skeleton:
    1. Follow the link to the skeleton.
    2. Near the top of the screen, select “Open with MindMup 2.0”.
    3. Once you have opened the file in MindMup, make a copy of it (File menu > Make a copy) that will be stored in your Google Drive (this is the file you will edit and submit).
    4. Now you can work on the map.
    5. To go back to your work after a break, simply find the file in your Drive. You may need to right-click the file and then select “Open with” > “MindMup 2.0”.

2 Tasks

  1. Open: Simon Keller. Friendship and Belief
  2. Read section 1 for helpful background and an explanation of Keller’s main claim. No mapping required.
  3. Read section 3.
  4. Map section 3, starting from this skeleton. (You need do no more than fill in the blanks. As always, please leave the numbers in parentheses intact, and leave a few underscore characters on either side of what you fill in, so that we can easily pick out your contribution.)
  5. Read Friendship, belief and stakes.
  6. From within Mindmup, do “File > Make a copy” to make a copy of your map with the name “hw3-map2”
  7. Map the argument implicit in that reading by adding it as an objection to one of the claims in the copy you just created. Hint: what you add might include the claim “Friendship makes the same demands on Eric and Erica’s poetry beliefs.”
