AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE...TURN IN:
- Your completed assessment of your Writing Processes essay
- TWO coded transcripts
- A print out of your code
- Please staple all of these documents together.
Thesis Statements...Get One!
- Y'all are struggling with these still.
- Thesis statements should be arguable and debatable claims you are going to prove in your paper.
- Check out the OWL: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/545/01/
- Where to find a thesis?? Look at your conclusion!
- Use Jen's "inverted triangle" technique.
Get with a partner in your writing group. Ask your partner the following question, and write down what he or she says:
- What does your paper do?
- In one or two sentences, summarize what you concluded based on your rhetorical analysis
- Next, compare what you wrote to the existing thesis in the paper.
Go back to your draft and revise, or WRITE your thesis statement for WP 1
Other Issues to Consider
Peer Review Workshop
So, How Will You Apply the Concepts We've Learned about Peer Review?
- Use the WP 1 Rubric as you offer your writer feedback. You may print this, or fill it out electronically.
- Ask Your Writer Questions
- Write a paragraph summarizing your findings at the bottom of your peer's paper, or at the bottom of the rubric.
Writers, Use Your Feedback!
- Take some time to carefully review your feedback. What do you need to address?
- REVISE, REVISE, REVISE. Polish and finish your CONTENT for WP 1
- READ and REVIEW the MLA Documentation Guide. Then, clean up your MLA documentation as best you can. If you are using anything from Wooster's lecture...you need to cite it!
- Bring your most recent version of WP 1 to class on Thursday. Please bring both an electronic and print version of your essay! We'll be working with these in Comp and Seminar!
