Wednesday, October 5

Assigned homework for Thursday: finish reading Chapter One in the handout, reading the last selections carefully.  Come prepared to write!

Checked in about vocabulary we generated from the yesterday's essay, "The Myth of Tone Policing," and distributed a Quizlet list for Friday.

Groups shared their annotations and discussed
  • Significant-seeming information on Speaker, Occasion/Context, or Audience
  • Suggestions of tone
  • Rhetorical appeals (to authority/character, reason, or emotion)
  • Likely PURPOSE of the work.
Whole class discussion, analyzing the essay together.

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