Week Eight Syllabus Update

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.            

     Jalaluddin Rumi

Week Eight (10.19-10.23):


Introduction to the Pyramid of Cool. A look at how advertising uses rhetoric to persuade--this will provide us with the terms ethos, pathos, and logos.



Partner and large group analysis practice using current advertisements.

Wednesday (shortened classes):

Sam brings his Song of the Day.


I will be gone on a field trip with DMACC Comp students. In my absence, you will start watching Feeding Frenzy, a documentary about how the food industry markets food (often "food") to us. We will complete this viewing on Friday, discuss, and complete a forum response for Monday.


Continue watching Feeding Frenzy. Discuss in class. A forum response is due by Monday.
