Revisions Strategies: Literary Moves

Today in class a couple of students came early to complete Essay Exam 1; another student came to check-in on how he is doing. We had a great conversation.

When we shifted from A-232 to A-205 we watched a video: Revision Strategies. We then read, or rather Elijah read the two chapters aloud. We then talked about it.

The Works Cited for the optional freewrite is:

Skwire, Sarah and David Skwire. Writing with a Thesis: A Rhetoric and a Reader. Ohio: Wadworth,   2007. Print.

The Write Course: Revision Strategies. Annenberg Learner. 1980s. VHS.

If students don't reflect on the material now, it will be the freewrite on Tuesday, October 16, 2012.

Homework is to catch up in Dyson. Read the second section. Finish the book for October 23. We will write a short essay on Tuesday about one of Dyson's many arguments. We'll brainstorm first. Look at "I Always Wanted to Make a Book out of My Life." In this chapter, Dyson clearly outlines the book and his goals. Check back and forth to see is he accomplishes this.

In Pidd we reviewed the errors in Essay 3: Point of View. That essay was due Tuesday. Turn it in Tuesday. If anyone missed the Essay Exam 1, you can come to class early on Tuesday. I will be in A-232 from 8 AM to 9 and 11-12.
