Tuesday, October 4

Discussion of ideas in yesterday's homework: how tone and appeals to authority/character, reason, and emotion applied to the texts in the reading.
Discussion of visual texts as argument.  Shared simplified version of the SOAPStone organizer.

Read and annotated the essay, "The Myth of Tone Policing," looking for

  • Unfamiliar vocabulary
  • Significant-seeming information on Speaker, Occasion, or Audience
  • Suggestions of tone
  • Rhetorical appeals (to authority/character, reason, or emotion)
Whole class shared challenging vocabulary; groups discussed probable meanings for the words we identified.

Groups will continue with a discussion of their other annotations and observations tomorrow.

Friday, October 7: "The Myth of Tone Policing" Vocabulary Quiz.
