Good afternoon, everyone!

  • Questions, comments, concerns?
  • Let's take RTTP Reading Quiz #2! This multiple choice quiz will cover material over Labor and Labor Movements from pages 31-50 of the Greenwich Village text. You will have 20 minutes to take the quiz, don't rush- read the answer choices carefully!
    • An Experiment in Group Think!
    • A Challenge for you all!
  • Let's take some time and discuss Writing Project 1: The Rhetorical Analysis
    • What exactly are you writing about ? What is the purpose?
    • The exercises you have completed in all of your learning community courses thus far have reinforced the idea that a close reading/analyses of the reading material, sharing ideas during class discussion will serve you well when we begin the Game. Mastering the basics will help you provide credible(legit)evidence to strengthen your argument in your own writings and speeches and to advance your cause in the game.
