Reminder that I asked you to have Chapter 3 of OMM read for Tuesday. Your lab book prompt is: identify the types of violence in Chapter 3 and what you think each one means or signifies symbolically.
Today is a writing day.
I’ll start with an Essay Ambulance, talking about some of the big bugaboos folks are having on their papers:
- Thesis whats and so whats
- How to build the template, specifically looking at making your main points into categories/ideas rather than plot points or summaries
- How to read your comments and figure out which comment is talking about which section
I’m also posting the Drafting Task 1 Slide Show for your reference, for those who are ready or will be soon. One of the main tensions folks get into with drafting has to do with making sure you’re doing ANALYSIS rather than just summary/restating your evidence. If you get stuck there, here are some handouts to help: Sample 1, Sample 2.
Then you’ll need to take the (open-packet) Writing Process Quiz.
You have the rest of the period to write and conference as needed.
