Rhetoric & Comp – Friday, March 9th

Book talk x 2.  Quickwrite (upside-down):  absence of indie read time this week? what happened? why? what does that mean? self-reflection on your reading.  Indie read.  Topic:  Engaging Your Reader – the personal vs. the vague.  Intro remarks on research papers/projects.

video: Multigenre Man – Tom Romano

To Do:  Think about how using the personal or specific or story “angle” brings the reader IN.  Consider how generalizations (in your connexions paper or your Hamlet research) distance your reader and see what you can do about that (either in revisions or before you submit “teacher-ready” work, respectively).


  • Hamlet paper “teacher-ready” w/ works cited page due no later than 11:59pm on Sun. 3/11.
  • Sources due on Monday in class – highlight what you cited.
