The Sawmilling Industry
Write a Summary
The act of writing a summary, strangely enough, forces us to explain to our reading audience what we understand from a text. The writing process itself becomes the medium for developing our understanding. Reading and then explaining what you read go hand in hand.
Pick three elements of sawmilling from the graphic novel and explain them briefly. Explain briefly is writing 3-5 sentences about each part of the sawmilling industry that you choose. One of the elements you write about should be a primary source document that are in the graphic novel (linked to the graphic novel with a scroll icon to click over.) Your final assignment should show a general understanding of three elements of the sawmilling industry.
