Please post your annotated bibliographies here! Re-read the prompt to make sure you’ve met the assignment (remember you only need six sources, not eight!). Be sure to tag the “Annotated Bibliography” category when posting. And please put the name of your genre in the title of your post!
Here is your opportunity to practice the rhetorical analysis we started in class! After reading the Annotated Bibliography prompt, do some research and thinking before you decide which genre you want to become an expert on in Unit 2. Then, choose a text that falls within that genre and rhetorically analyze it in this post. (Check out the Annotated Bibliography prompt again to review the features within and surrounding your text that you should consider when doing your rhetorical analysis).
Be sure to identify your chosen genre in your post’s title. Oh–and choose “Rhetorical Analysis” when publishing your post!
For extra credit, respond to 3 of your classmates’s posts, offering ways you think they could enrich their rhetorical analysis and/or recommending other texts within their genre that they might consider for their annotated bibliographies.

Click on the “Literacy Narrative” category option when posting.
Peruse your classmates’s stories about how they became the readers and writers and thinkers they are today. What can we learn about the role of reading and writing today as a result of these shared pieces?
Hi! Welcome to your first online discussion! Please post your responses to Malcolm X or Sandra Cisneros here. Be sure to refer to specific passages when crafting your responses.

DUE SEPT 11: Please post your personal anecdote/experience essays here! Be sure to consult the Unit 1 Assignment sheet (I passed this out in class and I also sent it as an attachment via email).
Describe a personal experience that in some way describes or enables you to say something about your relationship to reading and writing. BUT! Stick with the description of the event–we will be expanding the experience to your literacy narrative next week.
