• Before we begin class, I want us to go over the survey I asked you to complete over the weekend.
1302.740 | 1302.741
  • 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
