Homework

  • READ THE SYLLABUS. For real. Read it. If you don't come to class on Monday with lots of questions, I'll be happy to test your understanding of the syllabus with a quiz...so you can prove to me you understand everything about the syllabus. Just sayin'.
  • Review (or re-read) pp. 15-34 in Naming What We Know. (Hereafter, I'll refer to our text simply as NWWK.).
  • After you review the text, go back through your highlighted passages and notes; also, consider our online class discussion. Choose three passages (direct quotes) from three different sections that resonate with you.
  • Compose a Reading Response in which you:
    • Introduce or contextualize the quote. Provide some context about what the author's topic is.
    • Provide the direct quote, along with correct academic documentation.
    • Provide your own analysis of the quote. Further explain what you think the author is saying and why you think this is significant.
    • Include a Works Cited list.
  • Please bring this as a printed, stapled version to class on Monday

Also...

  • Don't forget your assignment for Prof. Marquez (especially since it helps with MY class!) Your response may be handwritten. Responses will be picked up at the BEGINNING of Seminar!)
    • Answer the following questions below, in paragraph form. Elaborate and explain as much as possible:'''
      • Other than class assignments, what kinds of things do you write or have you written?
      • What piece of writing are you most proud of?
      • How does writing make you feel and why?
