Read: The Power of Writing pg 31-43


In-Class

  • Writing is a dual-process. We must write to be understood, but our reader must be able to understand us
  • Look for quotes in readings. Good quotes will have a strong effect on the reader, shift the ideas in the essay, or clarify information.
  • Once you find interesting quotes, look at the context the quote is found in.
  • How do we summarize? What is important; what is extraneous?
