Comp Updates

Week Four Syllabus Update (Homecoming)

What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
                                  --Samuel Johnson

Week Four (Homecoming):

Sometime this week you should read/skim W2-W5 and P7c-P7g in your Hacker Guide.

Monday:

We will review and practice thesis statements, using the support documents found below:

Then your writing group needs to write a thesis for your group literary analysis of "The Story of an Hour." If you haven't yet, you need to look at the literary analysis support documents found on last week's update. 
Share that thesis with me. Your group's two-page literary analysis needs to be shared with me on Google Docs by class time on WednesdayThursday.

Tuesday:

Today we will work on paraphrase, using the support documents found below:

Wednesday:

No class. Your group's two-page literary analysis of "The Story of an Hour" needs to be shared with me by class time on Thursday.

Thursday:

We will practice some of the "sexy" punctuation we talked about in the opening week.

Friday:

Homecoming. No class. In fact, since you don't have school on Monday, it's a four-day Comp Weekend for you. Make sure you have finished reading Station Eleven by Tuesday's class. We will jump in with the understanding that all have read the book and are ready to discuss it.
I want each of you to have asked at least one good, open-ended question in the TodaysMeet backchannel by the time we meet on Tuesday. The link for that is found below:

Note that no school Monday means we will meet on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
