Tuesday, October 11

Assigned homework for tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12.

Discussed the purpose in "The Myth of Tone Policing" and considered it's probably message: while dismissing an argument based on its tone is a mistake, so is refusing to debate a point at all based on the emotional impact of the subject matter.  (Do we agree? Disagree?  Are some subjects not open to debate?)

Read the essay "Activism: You're Not Doing It Wrong," and considered its tone, its intended message, and its intended audience.

Discussed the relationship between the tone of a piece, the intended audience for a piece, and its purpose.
