Rhetoric & Comp – Thursday, September 16th

WRITE CLUB!! Welcome & “rules.”

Follow the Write Club procedures we practiced yesterday to Bless, Address, & Press for each group member’s paper. Be sure to give feedback through MSWord in the margins (not just in discussion) that looks for what’s good = ), asks readerly questions ?, and makes suggestions in the form of “what if…” or “maybe try…”

If you missed class, check the feedback your group members gave you and be sure to give them feedback too.

And know it is always okay to go back and leave more comments later (within the next couple of days) if you need time to process or reread to give good commentary.
