MCL&R – Tuesday, October 9th

Book trailers & Indie read.  Video:  Rapping, Deconstructed – vox.com .  Preview:  rhetoric of rap paper (where is this going?)  a look at Mos Def’s “Mathematics” with annotation and an example paper that deconstructs the rap to show readers how rhetoric works here.

Upcoming:

  • Paper #1 (quickwrite expansion) will be due in teacher-ready form in class on Friday (some lab time on Thursday for final revisions).
  • Think about what rap lyrics (or other text-rich lyrics) you will dissect for the rhetoric of rap paper.  Bring those lyrics to class on Friday!  *if you choose a non-rap song, you have to get it approved by Mrs. C = )
  • New book club after P/T Conferences – week of Oct 22 – 26.  Book talks, selection, info & ordering later this week.
