After reading Unit 1: Chapter 4 of Urban Reader for College Writers, answer both of the following questions as a comment on this post:
What is your reaction to neighborhood residents having decision-making power when it comes to traffic, noise, or business in their communities? What if not everyone in the community agrees?
What suggestions would you make to improve your neighborhood? Why would you change these things if you could?
Be as detailed and as opinionated as you like. You may speak about a personal experience, or just discuss the idea in general.
You must post a comment answering this question before class on Monday. You may feel free to post as many times and as much as you like beyond the minimum requirement. Remember, this counts as class participation and a homework grade. Have fun with it!
*Note: Replies must be well thought out and complete sentences. Saying “I agree” is not enough. With what do you agree (or respectfully disagree)? Why? Do you have suggestions, additions? Be thorough.
Your vocabulary homework is also due on Monday. Choose 5 words from the Zoom in on Vocabulary section at the end of this chapter and follow the guide in the documents section of the blog.
Dont forget your rewritten CATW essay on “Decline and Fall of Teaching History” is also due on Monday.
The CATW writing directions are in the document section of the blog if you need to reference them. They are also on various worksheets you’ve been given.
Only if you did not turn in your essay on time, you have additional homework. For those people who did not turn their paper in on time, read Unit 1/Ch 2 of your book and answer the Main Idea section, 1-3 and the Discuss This section 1-6. If you complete this and make a clear effort then you will not be penalized for having a late paper. Get your paper to me by Monday.
If you turned in your essay on time then this does not apply to you!
