HW for Thu, 10/10

A lot to catch up on, my apologies!
–If you haven’t yet, complete the make-up assignment from last week, as it will count as your “attendance” for both classes last Thursday.
–If your draft of Essay 2 is due on Wednesday, work on that!
–If you’d like me to give you a provisional letter grade (not a final grade) for your Essay 1, please send me a *significantly revised* version of that essay by Tuesday, 10/15.  See my separate post on Midterm and Essay grading.
–Read Mirene Arsanios’ “April-May-June” in Packet I (pp. 32-7).  Focus on: how does Arsanios move between narrative (action) and her own analysis (reflection)?  How does she reflect on the significance of the events she’s experienced without and turning her experience into an “epiphany” (a “look-how-much-I-learned-about-the-hidden-secrets-of-life moment”)?  Where and how does she bring in secondary sources—text or ideas by other writers that she has found through research and reading?
–Read Adrian Chen’s “Don’t Be A Stranger” in Packet I (pp. 62-6).  Focus on: what is Chen’s thesis/argument?  Where and how does she discuss research that supports her thesis?

Is this peer pressure at its finest? Dria and some kind of way was somehow over isn’t it kissing this guy’s leg but some way or another they tried to lighten up the mood in the midst of all this several different I think it’s both six different houseguest. I feel eager to ask” is that the order of military Navy and air man mentality, it seems really draining. Milla is gambling with what it is people called during. What is Miller trying to get at is money what he is he uses to allow people to feel is important and then tries to break the mold of what money symbolizes as you are pushing pass all the barriers.  this is easier in a gray area while you explore both sides and never do you question only one because there’s so much to explore. Life is grand, no!
