–Complete Quiz 1 (link above) by Friday at 5p if you haven’t yet. I will be closing the Quiz at that time on Friday.
—By Sunday: Reply to my response to your post about Chu’s “The Pink” with a revised version of your original post.
–Post 1 paragraph of specific feedback for each person whose essay was read in class today. Post each paragraph of feedback as a response to the post I’ve made with the writer’s name (under Essay 1 feedback).
–Read: Mirene Arsanios’ “April-May-June” (in “Readings” folder).
–Write and post below (as a reply to this post) your response to Arsanios’ text. You can write about any aspect of the essay that interests you and/or consider responding to (any of) these questions: What does Arsanios’ text show us about the differences between text-based and spoken communication? What makes this text a “narrative”? How is it different from a “thesis”-based/argumentative essay?
In addition, as we did this past week, I want you to quote one sentence from Arsanios’ text and analyze the language in it carefully: how does the word choice, word order, length, etc. produce certain effects on you as a reader? Explain.
–Remember, there is no class next week (2/12), so we will meet next on Wed 2/19. Between now and then, I will be responding to your blog work and available via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
