- I'm going to hand back your responses from Monday's discussion.
- Reflect on the Triad theme: "Freedom Isn't Free" and ask yourself:
- What kind of freedom is evident in your own life?
- Where else do these kinds of freedom appear?
- Have these same freedoms always existed?
- Why is it important to think about freedom?
- Write about your reflections for the next 5-10 minutes
Freedoms in Charlotte Temple
- Let's spend some time discussing how Rowson depicts different freedoms and how you might go about investigating them in your essays.
- Take a look at the Rhetorical Terms that you might use to describe Rowson's writing.
- Get into pairs to look at one term of your choosing.
- We'll make assignments so that there isn't any double dipping.
- After discussing for a little bit with your partner, you'll be expected to explain to the class what your term involves.
- If you have any particular examples from the text (or elsewhere), be sure to include them.
- Be sure to take notes while your classmates present; you might want to examine in your essay a rhetorical term that they are describing!
- Class Practice
- Continue reading Charlotte Temple. Try to get through Volume I over the weekend.
- Begin using your writings from this week to develop a Shitty First Draft of your ideas about freedom.
- We'll use this later as a basis for explaining the rhetorical devices you uncover in Rowson's writing!
- Bring it to class on Monday for a homework grade.
