- Before we begin class, I want us to go over the survey I asked you to complete over the weekend.
- Some of my take-aways from the surveys:
- More examples
- More group work and reflections
- Less Absences
- More study sessions
- Less writing
- If you have not had time to complete the survey, please do so by Friday
- Now, for class we will be splitting up into your seminar groups in order to peer-review the proposals you worked on over the weekend
- Pull those up from the OneDrive, or wherever you have it stored
- Each writer will have a turn to listen to the group discuss the use of the rhetorical situation of the proposal
- Some things to think about: Can you clearly tell what the author's proposal topic is? How is the language being used? Does it make a clear point of what the author is bringing to the table in terms of engineering? Are they entering the conversation?
- Each writer will also have a chance to ask questions from the group
- This is especially helpful for any writer that is unsure of how to begin
- Make sure to write down comments, either on a sheet of paper or on the writing itself
- The peer-reviews CANNOT just be: "Everything looks fine." There needs to be substantial comments being made
- Example: "This part here is working very well, but we could use more information about this in order to fully understand what you are wanting to do."
- If time is available at the end of class, go into the In-Class Writing folder and write a reflection of what your group discussed in the October 17 folder
- If time is not available, do this part for homework
- Continue working on the drafts and doing research
